There’s $1600 worth of cash and prizes hidden throughout Toronto this week

Torontonians love a good scavenger hunt, and if it takes place during the summer months, you can count us in.

Spending time outside as you challenge yourself (and your local neighbourhood knowledge), is a fun way to spend your time off (or lunch break), and when it comes with the added bonus of winning a prize promoting your health and wellness at the end, even better.

This week, you’re in luck because Toronto tourism company Loon Escape and CBD company resolveCBD are teaming up to launch a six-day interactive health and wellness scavenger hunt, kicking off on Tuesday, August 13. The goal of both companies is for participants to get outside, get active, explore, and learn about the city of Toronto.

Curious as to where the hunt will take you and the kind of prizes which will be up for grabs? Awesome, stay with us.

Of course, Loon Escape and resolveCBD want to make the hunt worth your while, and that’s why they’re hiding health and wellness gift boxes in six key locations across the downtown core.

Total retail value of each box is approximately $270 CAD, and here’s a look at what it will include:

Loon Escape and resolveCBD

  • $100 cash
  • One (1) voucher for a free Loon Escape walking tour for two (valued at $70 +tax)
  • Plus vouchers for other wellness freebies from resolveCBD (valued at $100 +tax)

The scavenger hunt is going to give you the opportunity to get out and explore the city, get some exercise in (walking or jogging), and learn about the historical and cultural significance of each location you visit along the way (essentially a self-walking tour!).

Both company’s social accounts @loonescape and @resolvecbd will post four to six clues on their Instagram Stories for each gift box location. This will happen daily over the course of the six-day hunt at 11:30 am EST, which means that you’ve got the chance to discover one gift box per day!

Here’s a look at an example timeline that will help you get organized ahead of time:

  • Up to six clues are posted starting at 11:30 am EST, at 15 to 25-minute intervals.
  • Each clue will progressively narrow down the location (e.g. Clue #1 will be for the general vicinity/neighbourhood, Clue #2 will be somewhat more specific to an intersection, Clue #3 even more specific to a park or building/landmark, and Clue #4 will be for the specific hiding spot, such as around a bench or a group of trees).

The remaining days of the campaign will follow the same format.

Now that you’ve got all the key information down, be sure to follow @loonescape and @resolvecbd on Instagram for the next steps.

Good luck, dear friends!
