How Much Good Can YOU Do in a Day? Boston Cares Dash for a Difference: April 30

Boston Cares Dash for a Difference

Saturday, April 30, 2020, 9am-2pm

Join Boston Cares on a race through Boston neighborhoods on a quest to help others, learn about our city, and raise funds for Boston Cares.  Up to 100 teams of two to five individuals will participate in volunteer tasks at community agencies, with a dose of fun and informative quests in between.  All teams will be invited to celebrate the day’s successes with snacks and beer at their final stop – the Samuel Adams Celebration of Service. It’s an amazing five-hour adventure in volunteerism and teamwork.

Here’s how it works:  Teams will start at 9 am sharp, when each team will receive the first of the 8-10 destinations they will visit.  At each destination, teams must complete tasks in order to have their passport stamped and receive their clue to the next destination.  Most tasks will be mini volunteer projects, while a few will be learning-oriented, where teams must piece together clues to gain points; and some will be “just for fun” assignments.  Team starts will be staggered across the route to minimize bottlenecks at agencies.

Each individual is responsible for raising a minimum of $100 in pledges.  All funds raised benefit Boston Cares, a non-profit organization that annually organizes over 2,400 teams of volunteers in service to Greater Boston.

This event is open to the public, with prizes (including JetBlue tickets, good for anywhere JetBlue flies!) for top finishers and top fundraisers.
