A Modern-Day Treasure Hunt for Good

Over $50,000 Awarded to Local Nonprofits

From July 17 – September 10, 2019, Geocachers discovered caches and posted pictures to social media each week for a chance to win $1,000 to donate to a nonprofit partner. At the end of the campaign, four Geocachers who completed the GeoTour and found all 10 caches, were selected to award $5,000 each to one of our nonprofit partners. Thank you for playing!
