An annual event is coming around again, sponsored by GBCC member, Game Genius. The District Hunt engages the minds and imaginations of participants in a fun mystery that celebrates different forms of literacy, from linguistic and cultural to financial and digital.
The 2022 District Hunt offers two ways to play. Teams can join a race to solve the puzzle on October 1, or they can solve the finish the outdoor adventure on their own time from October 2-10. The hunt guides participants around Washington DC, where players learn about the community and experience the city from a new perspective. Event proceeds support Game Genius’s work with local nonprofits.
Back to School, Back to Business
The District Hunt offers participants the chance to work together in a unique team building activity that calls on different skills and knowledge. Every year, the game centers around an important theme such as Women’s History or Mental Health. “We love how the District Hunt makes learning fun and engages the competitive spirit in all of us,” says Peter Williamson, President of Game Genius. “This year’s theme of literacy is particularly important since the four corners of language, culture, finance, and tech are the foundations of good business.”
The GBCC is a thriving Chamber of Commerce and enjoys a special relationship with its member non-profits. “Business and community go hand in hand, and we always want to offer energy and support to the organizations doing good work for our members, their families and the rest of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase community,” says Allie Williams, President and CEO, The Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce.
Opportunities to Get Involved
This event offers so many ways to participate. People can play the hunt as individuals or teams, and thanks to sponsors, Game Genius offers discounted rates to players who qualify. Players must register by September 30th to participate on opening weekend. Sponsorship opportunities are still open, giving businesses a chance to get involved and give back to the community. In addition, Game Genius is looking for partner organizations that are non-profits doing critical literacy work in the DMV region. Game Genius will feature and celebrate relevant organizations through the hunt, which garners exposure for the organizations as well as a chance for staff to engage in the fun.
