Portland, OR – Bradley Angle will host its first community event, a scavenger hunt that will take participants to 10 sites in the Albina neighborhood. Each stop, and corresponding challenge, showcases historic or sites of current significance in the Black community, and educates participants about racial equity issues and healthy relationships. These goals tie directly to the non-profit’s mission to serve anyone facing domestic violence, particularly Black/African American adult and child survivors. Participants earn points for challenges completed which convert to entries for raffle prizes.
Although this is a fundraiser, the event is free. Rather than a traditional gala Bradley Angle wants to make this event accessible to everyone. Support for the organization is coming through sponsorships. Rivermark CCU was an early sponsor of the event. “It sounds like a wonderful opportunity that fosters both important learning and active, outdoor family fun,” said Hayley Andres, community development manager, who also looks forward to participating in the event.
The scavenger hunt takes place over spring break, March 18 to April 3 so participants have flexibility to complete it on their own time. All stops, except one, are outdoors so distancing can be maintained. Participants register to receive a downloadable app that will provide access to the event and its challenges, point tally, and social feed. Raffle winners will be announced on April 8.
