The purpose of The IBC Network Foundation is simple:
What is the Hunt for Hope?
The Hunt for Hope is an adventurous scavenger hunt! Teams are comprised of two or more participants. Ideal team size is four to six members and teams stay together to complete tasks. You only need a camera phone, transportation and a fun competitive spirit to participate! Teams will have three hours to complete as many of the given tasks as possible. Each task is assigned a point value, and the teams with the most points win prizes.
When is the Hunt for Hope?
The Hunt is Saturday, September 28, 2019 with check in beginning at 9 AM. At this time team captains pick up event packets and t-shirts. The Hunt will run from 9 to Noon. Register by September 1st to ensure your t-shirt size.
Where: Chapel Park 152 S Chapel St. Layton, UT 84041
How does the Hunt for Hope raise money?
There is no participation fee for the Hunt for Hope. Your initial $25 donation offsets the cost of your t-shirt. Instead, teams and individuals are encouraged to reach out to their friends and family to collect donations. Prizes are awarded for teams or individuals that collect the most donations. Teams will also earn some of their points based on the amount of money their team raised! The money raised underwrites research via The IBC Network Foundation. To begin raising donations you can create a participant page or just donate to one of the participants. . Don't forget to see if your company matches donations!
What is Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC)?
IBC is a rare form of breast cancer. The 5-year overall survival rate is less than 30%, as compared to near 90% for all other types of breast cancers combined. IBC cannot be detected until a stage III.
This is the first Hunt for Hope to be held in Utah, so we have started with a small goal. We would love to blow past that! :)
Funds raised from this Hunt will be used to underwrite inflammatory breast cancer research at the Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast Cancer Clinic at MD Anderson in Houston, TX. Why this clinic? If you are not familiar this is the leading clinic in the world for IBC research and supporting them supports women in Utah by offering the best standard of care information and research possible.
