TRURO - A special ‘hunt' in Truro aims to raise poverty awareness as well as join the community for a fun event.
On Oct. 17, the National Day for the Elimination of Poverty, the Colchester Anti Poverty Network will host a "Poverty Hunt" from 4 to 6 p.m. Teams, which can be two or more people, will meet and begin the hunt at the Truro Farmers' Market on Young Street. Clues will be provided directing them to various locations in downtown Truro.
The community is invited to form a team for the event, which will be similar to the reality television show The Amazing Race.
Invitations are being sent to local municipal and provincial government leaders, non- profit organizations, business leaders, community groups, churches, education institutions and youth groups. People wishing to participate but who don't have a team can be matched with other individuals who would like to be part of a team.
For more information, or to register for the event, contact Angie MacIntyre at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 893-5886. The deadline for registration is Oct. 10.
