What is QUASH?

Who: You know the type. That adventure-loving, laughing-the-whole-way, go-big-or-go-home sort of person. It’s you. And your friends. And the friends of your friends. Pretty much anyone who is unafraid of a challenge and up for a good time. 


What: QUASH is the Quest to Unravel Alzheimer’s, a citywide Scavenger Hunt. Think along the lines of that reality TV show where teams race around the world, but without the cameras and the two-week commitment. Trust us, it’s better this way - no one looks good in high-def.

We’ll provide the clues and map. You’re responsible for the brain power and broken-in sneakers. QUASH is a race against the clock, your opponents and your teammates’ insistence that yes, they know where they’re going. And if all goes according to plan, you’ll emerge victorious and earn bragging rights that will last a lifetime - or at least ‘till the post-QUASH afterglow fades away.
