Adventure Race for Parkinson’s is tomorrow

Don’t be surprised if you see people in costume, racing around the neighborhood tomorrow in groups of three or four. It’s part of the annual Adventure Race for Parkinson’s, in which over 200 hundred participants will embark on a massive Ballard-wide scavenger hunt. The race will be on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 12 to 4:30pm. 

Now in its fifth year, the scavenger hunt was started by Jen and Chris Adams, after Chris was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the age of 42. Along with friends, the Adams set up the adventure race to raise awareness and money for the American Parkinson Disease Association.

“One of the common misconceptions about Parkinson’s is that it only impacts the elderly,” Jen Adams said. “But more and more people are learning to identify the symptoms of early onset. While the Adventure Race requires stamina, it also gives those in our community living Parkinson’s a chance to participate and engage.”

For the race, costumed teams of up to four will race through Ballard, stopping at businesses and other locations to compete in mental and physical tasks to collect points. Winning teams will win prizes from local business. It will begin at Trident Seafoods (5303 Shilshole Ave NW), continuing around Ballard and ending with a party at Peddler Brewing Company (1514 NW Leary Way) from 2:30pm to 4:30pm with prizes, a raffle, and a live auction. 

There’s still time to join in: register here.
