A stroll through downtown Atlanta could win you some prizes, including Atlanta United tickets.
The Central Atlanta Progress, a group aimed at enhancing downtown Atlanta, is holding a “Downtown Walk Challenge” beginning Monday to encourage people to walk more in the city.
The free 5-day challenge offers residents a chance to participate in a scavenger hunt and explore the city. The challenge lasts from May 13 to May 17.
“Our goal with the Walk Challenge is to highlight Downtown’s walkability and encourage people to incorporate walking into their daily downtown routine,” said Jen Farris, transportation outreach coordinator for Downtown Connects. The organization, which provides personalized route planning for commuters, partnered with Central Atlanta Progress on the challenge.
Residents must download the app Scavify and answer riddles and trivia questions to complete the challenge. Participants earn points based on the type of challenges they complete.
A daily prize winner will be randomly selected at the end of each day and there will be small giveaways at each of the daily scavenger hunts.
Daily prizes include four Atlanta Movie Tour tickets, a Walter's Shoes gift card, a FitBit device, a Sweet Auburn Curb Market gift card, and a Custom Converse Sneaker gift card.
Participants with the most points will be entered to win the grand prize of two Atlanta United tickets.
A doughnut breakfast will be provided to the company with the most participants.
