August 11 – Causeway’s Wheely Awesome Scavenger Hunt

Get out your bikes and compete in Causeway’s first-ever scavenger hunt by bike! Venture out on your own or as part of a team with your friends and decipher a series of clues that will take you around the city for your chance to win great prizes, spend quality time with your friends and make a difference in someone’s life! Test your knowledge to solve each clue, share pics of your journey on Instagram and Twitter and flood the streets of Ottawa with bikes. The best part is that all proceeds go towards supporting people who have barriers to employment such as mental illness, disability, poverty and homelessness and help them find meaningful and lasting employment. 

To participate, purchase your $20 event ticket through Eventbrite and commit to raising at least $50 per person for Causeway. Your registration includes a day jam-packed of cycling, clue-solving fun and comes with a free BBQ lunch and snacks at Causeway on the event day. Raising at least $50 for Causeway makes you eligible for prizes. All donations support individuals who have barriers to employment, such as a mental illness or disability, in finding meaningful and rewarding work.
