Scavenger hunt benefits kids with cancer

Tampa, Florida -- On any given night, you can spot some strange/interesting looking people in Ybor City.

But Saturday, May 17 it will be a people-watcher's dream.

That's when more than a hundred people dressed in funny costumes will hit the streets for the Quest for Hope scavenger hunt.

Using a mobile app, teams make their way to local businesses where they'll have to solve riddles and perform ridiculous stunts. "Teams of two to six run around Ybor City performing eating challenges, physical challenges…and having a ton of fun," says Minesh Patel of the Krewe of Nautilus, which puts on the hunt.

Money raised by Quest for Hope helps fund a program for kids with cancer at the Florida Aquarium called Club Nautilus. "This club allows them an opportunity to enjoy a day at the aquarium. They get to meet and play with our volunteers and have a great time at the aquarium," says Mary Ann Massolio of the 1Voice Foundation, a research and advocacy group for kids with cancer.

10 News Traffic Warrior Holley Sinn will help kickoff Saturday's hunt. Teams can register right up until its start at 3:00 pm Saturday.
