Cache for Life
A healthy lifestyle event organized by Manitouwadge Family Health Team in partnership with Santé Manitouwadge Health and Thunder Bay District Health Unit. Geocaching is an excellent way to get active and stay in shape, and this 24 hour bike or walk challenge is a great way to get started! Teams of two or three, as well as families, may register with the Family Health Team by Friday September 21. Come out for a weekend of active geocaching fun!
Geocaching is a worldwide treasure hunt played using a GPS receiver. Over 1.8 million geocaches, placed by other players, exist on all seven continents. Geocaches contain a minimum of a logbook, but many also contain “treasures” that players may swap for gifts of their own. However, what keeps geocachers coming back is the thrill of the hunt. The only necessary equipment for geocaching is a GPS receiver or GPS-enabled mobile device. Each geocache has posted coordinates and important information available on the official website:www.geocaching.com. Information includes terrain, difficulty, hints, and any other necessary knowledge needed to find the cache. Hard copies of this information will be available, for the contest caches, at check Friday September 28th.
Beginning at 3:30 PM on Friday September 28, check in will take place at Manitouwadge Family Health Team. Registration will take place, and all rules and instructions will be reviewed. Then, at 5:00 PM, the challenge will officially begin and for 24 hours, teams will have the opportunity to seek as many caches as possible. Hidden by Manitouwadge Family Health Team, all geocaches are within 3 kilometres of the listed coordinates. Each find is worth one point, and each first to find is worth a bonus half point! First to find prizes will also be randomly placed in some caches! Teams will stop searching at 5:00 PM on Saturday, and a wind up social will take place at 7:00 outside the hospital cafeteria. Refreshments and food will be served, and winners will be announced. Prizes will be awarded to the first place team and by random draw. Anyone is welcome to attend, please register by September 21, 2012 by contacting the Family Health Team at 826-3174.
