An amazing five-hour adventure in volunteerism and teamwork.
Teams of "Dashers" will gather in downtown Boston at 9 a.m., when each will receive the first of the 10-12 destinations they must visit during the competition. At each destination, teams must complete tasks in order to have a passport stamped and receive their clue to the next destination. The majority of tasks will be mini-service projects; while others may be learning-oriented, where teams must piece together clues to gain points; and others will be "just for fun" assignments. All teams will be invited to toast the day's successes with snacks and beer at their final stop - the Samuel Adams Celebration of Service.
