Shriners Hospital for Children is one of the Charities
E.L.K. Charity Challenge (Everybody Loves Kids Charity Challenge a 501 (c)3) will consist of 50 (2 person) teams representing 5 children’s charities. Each team will pay a $10,000 entry fee. The event will take place in 7 cities along the California Coast. Each of the 50 teams will be broken down into 5 squadrons. Each squadron will represent one charity. The Challenge is essentially a road based scavenger hunt (basically a combination of cannonball run & the amazing race) that will take place along the California coast. Each team will be given potential tasks to do along the route. Each completed task will be awarded with points depending on the task. There will be set points of convergence each day; all of the teams will start from the same location, stop at the same location for lunch and finish at the same location each evening. The squadron with the most points at the end of each day will be given a $10,000 check made out to the charity they are representing. At the end of the last day, a lump sum will be divided evenly amongst the charities in addition to the amounts won by each squadron.
