Adventure Awaits With The Incredible Kidney Quest Camp Edition
The Kidney Foundation is ready to launch its second annual Incredible Kidney Quest with a special camp-themed edition.
The all-inclusive virtual scavenger hunt runs from June 3 to June 12, 2022. Proceeds will generate much-needed funds to support Canadians affected by kidney disease including education, peer support and emergency financial assistance.
“The Incredible Kidney Quest was created last year to be a unique event that people could participate in and still feel safe, but have some fun during the pandemic,” states Erika Muscat, a Windsor-based Kidney Foundation employee. “It received such positive feedback that we are thrilled to be bringing it back for a second year.”
This family friendly experience promises fun, adventure and memories — just like camp! You can complete the missions all in one day, or over several.
The Quest will test you and your team with trivia and take you around your local community to complete a variety of photo and video missions using the Eventzee App.
Since Biz X magazine is all about supporting local businesses, we are proud to be sponsoring the event once again with a special section of the Quest. Participants in Windsor Essex must take a picture of their favourite independently owned business (boutique, restaurant, retail store, or local business) to gain points.
There will be prizes for many of the highest points’ earners, the best team name and more.
“My friends and I participated in the first Kidney Quest and it was such a fun experience,” says Belinda Robertson, a 2021 participant from Harrow. “We travelled throughout our community, laughed, and took pictures, and the best part was that we knew the funds raised support people living with kidney disease. My husband struggled with kidney failure for many years and The Kidney Foundation was always there to support us, every step of the way.”
Through a special FUND A NEED component of this initiative, funds this year will be raised to make summer camp a reality for more patients and families.
In particular, The Kidney Foundation is proud to support Camp Dorset (near Huntsville) and Camp Kivita (outside of Bracebridge), providing transplant and dialysis patients the opportunity to experience a vacation while receiving treatment on site and connecting with others taking a similar journey.
The Incredible Kidney Quest can be experienced as a solo adventure for $30, with a partner for $55, or a group of three or more for $100. While it is a family-friendly event, appropriate for children of all ages, many will choose to complete the Quest with their friends. It can even be used as a team building event with co-workers.
