End Addiction HUNTsville - Hunt for Hope Resource Organization Application
Not One More Alabama would like to invite you to participate in our 1st Annual Hunt for Hope Scavenger Hunt. The hunt will take place over 2 days, February 26 -February 27. In response to COVID-19 and serving as a replacement this year for the End Heroin HSV Walk, the Hunt for Hope is an opportunity to create a fun, family-friendly and COVID friendly event that will support our mission to connect people and educate the community on resources available to provide treatment and recovery support services.
At the End Heroin HSV Walk, we encouraged resource organizations to come to one central place for people to learn about their services. The Hunt for Hope will take a different approach where we will be sending the community out to learn about the resources where they are. All resource organizations with a 501(c)3 non-profit designation or other non-profit designation along with mutual aide support groups whose mission is aligned with the mission of NOMA, are encouraged to participate at no cost.
Being the first year that we have held the Hunt for Hope, we know we have a lot to learn so please bear with us as we take on this project as an All-Volunteer organization. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or suggestions. We will do our best to incorporate workable ideas into the Hunt!
Below is an info section on how the Hunt for Hope will work. If you are interested in participating, please complete this form and we will get back to you soon with more details.
How the Hunt Works!
The Hunt for Hope will begin at 10:00 AM on Friday February 26 at 10 AM and end at 4:00 PM on Saturday, February 27th. Teams of 1-3 people will be able to register on Eventbrite (
). Please refer to the Eventbrite site for more information on team registration. There is a $25/person fee to register and this includes a Hunt Tshirt and bag. Discounted registration is available to those with financial barriers.
Once a team is registered, they will be entered into the Goosechase App which will be used as a mechanism for entering in all "stops" and staying abreast of their place in the hunt! There will be 50+ "stops" or "missions" that teams will be able to choose from to visit and be awarded points for in the App. There will be 3 types of "stops" or "missions", Resource organizations, Sponsors, and Just for Fun stops! Stops will have a point value from 25 - 100 points each. All Resource organizations and "just for fun" stops will be awarded 25 points when visited. Sponsor organizations may be able to offer more points based on the amount of their donation. When visiting a stop, the participants will be required to post a photo to Facebook or Instagram with a #NOMA sign in front of the business or organization's sign. In the posting, they will be required to tag the organization they are visiting and NOMA. This will allow the resource organizations to have increased visibility in our community!
For each "Stop" on the hunt, the associated organization will determine where they want their "check-in" location to be. If an organization wants their stop to be at their place of business (preferred when practical and appropriate), the stop must be within a 30-mile radius of Big Spring Park in Huntsville based on Google Maps calculations. A stop may be at an organization's place of business or other approved location. For example, if you are a treatment provider and do not want people coming to your facility, you can set up a table as your "stop" at an approved location of your choosing as long as the location is within the 30 mile radius mentioned above. The preferred location for your "stop" is close to your business sign to allow for participants to take their "check-in photo". You do not have to have a member of your organization at the "stop" unless you choose to do so. In addition, you can also set up a time-limited stop that is only available during times that you identify. This may be used for organizations that are outside the 30-mile radius or that do not want participants at their business location. And finally, you may have a table to give out information at your "stop" at designated times but still allow participants to receive "stop" points any time during the race. This allows you to give out information as your schedule permits but allows participants to visit your "stop" when it is convenient for them. You will have the opportunity to let us know how you would like your stop to look in the form below.
On Saturday, February 26th, NOMA will be stationed all day at Big Spring Park with several "stops" available there to participants including a photo backdrop, a recovery celebration stop, a Narcan Stop where UAB School of medicine will be giving out Narcan, a memorial stop and Parent Coach Stop. At 4:00 PM, the race will officially end. The team entries will be reviewed and a winner will be announced. The winning team will receive $750, 2nd place $500 and 3rd place $250.
All participating organizations will be provided with an official race sign to place at the location where the participants will be "checking-in". You will also be able to provide NOMA with written literature and small promotional items (such as pens, notepads, etc) that we will put in the Team Bags. The bags will have each participants Hunt for Hope Tshirt and #NOMA sign along with materials provided by sponsors and resources. The number of items will be dependent on the number of people who sign up to participate.
