Raising Awareness and Supporting Local Charities

AWARENESS AND SUPPORT!

The Hong Kong Treasure Hunt is a fun filled, family-friendly adventure race around urban districts of Hong Kong. Combining challenges of speed, style and knowledge there is something to fit the interests and abilities of everyone.

Think you know this eclectic and ever changing city? Come and prove it and see how you stack up against the competition! The most successful teams will be crowned champions, while everyone is sure to enjoy an original, fun-filled day out.

A key aim of the Hong Kong Treasure Hunt is to increase local awareness for local charities and the issues that they aim to alleviate in Hong Kong and in turn to raise money in support of these charities and the communities that they support. All the charities do not receive government support during the year and so stand independent save for the wonderful efforts and passion of the people that drive and support them. Hong Kong is a society of great and famous success while others, under the same streetlights, struggle to survive.

How It Works:

Participants group together into teams consisting of 4-5 players. Each team must have the use of at least one smartphone with the ability to access 3G data (2 smartphones would be ideal as battery usage can be high). All teams meet at the same starting location. Once the event begins, teams will be allowed to log into the Hong Kong Treasure Hunt mobile site, where they will be given a series of tasks and clues. Teams must solve the clues in order to find hidden “checkpoints” (this year, the checkpoints will be placed throughout the Western District).

At the checkpoints, teams will be given tasks that they have to accomplish in order to receive a QR code (all smartphones should have a QR code reader! It can be downloaded here: https://scan.me/apps/scan/download). Every checkpoint will have a QR code that teams must scan with their phones in order to show that they have “checked in.”

Once teams have completed the tasks at every checkpoint or time is up, they can head to the end location (which is discoverable only by solving a clue!) where refreshments will be provided. Teams do not have to check into every checkpoint, but the more checkpoints they reach and tasks they complete, the more points they get.

Teams are ranked based on points. Teams score points by:

1) Number of check points reached

2) Speed to reaching the end location

3) Completion of tasks, which will be scored on a combination of speed, knowledge

and, of course, style!

Beware! We will be deducting points for every checkpoint that teams do not reach!!
