K2 Camp Quality Treasure Hunt
Monday 24th October 2011, 5:22PM
Teams Race Around BRISBANE to Support Camp Quality
Camp Quality believes in improving the quality of life for children living with cancer and their families through unrelenting optimism and the healing power of laughter. They create fun and supportive communities. They believe in building resilience in the lives of every child living with cancer and their family in Australia. Camp Quality will be the beneficiary of the 2011 K2 Camp Quality Treasure Hunt, a team challenge event through the streets of Brisbane City.
The K2 Camp Quality Treasure Hunt will be comprised of 150 registered teams each of two people. Starting at 9.00am Saturday the 26th of November 2011teams will be required to work together to solve mental and physical tasks in a fast-paced exciting race.
The registration fee for each team will be donated to Camp Quality in an effort to raise funds for this worthwhile charity. Teams will have to navigate a set course, moving between blocks and detours, each with their own individual challenges. A celebration and FREE sausage sizzle will be held at the conclusion of the day at K2 Base Camp where the prize winners will be announced.
This year’s prize pool has grown to over an incredible $15,000. The winner of the Treasure Hunt, which will be decided by a combination of the fastest time and accumulation of points, will receive $1,000 worth of adventure gear generously donated from K2 Base Camp. In addition, all participants that successfully navigate the course on the day will go into the draw to win an Icon Adventures Kokoda Trek and return flights for two people, to Papua New Guinea, valued at over $12,500. This is the third year the team from K2 Base Camp and K2 Odyssey Travel have been organising the event with all proceeds going directly to Camp Quality.
The event embodies the essence of Camp Quality’s positive culture of fun therapy and promises to be an enjoyable day for all participants.
“It is K2 Base Camp’s aim to raise in excess of $10,000 for the children and families of Camp Quality. In addition to
the funds raised by the Treasure Hunt, the K2 Adventure Gear stores, K2 Base Camp and Odyssey, will be donating 10% of their of profits over a one month period from product sold in each of the stores.” Winton Flesser, K2 Founder and Director.
