Chase After a Cure and On Purpose Adventures are partnering to create The Chase Challenge in which teams of adults and children participate in field day style contests and activities.

The Chase Challenge is set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 19 at Wannamaker County Park in North Charleston.

Teams of one adult and one child will compete against other teams in activities like the balloon toss, three-legged race, long jump, 40-yard dash and Frisbee toss. While raising money for Chase After a Cure, the alternate purpose of the event is for parents and children to have fun together and create memories, said Ben

Toy, owner of On Purpose Adventures, a local adventure event planning company.

Event activities are geared for children age 5 to 14 plus an adult teammate. Teams will be divided into age brackets (5-7, 8-11 and 12-14) and male and female divisions (based on child). Children younger than 5 can participate in an Easter egg hunt and other kid-friendly activities.

Interested individuals can sponsor four low-income children for $100. Those children will be paired with an adult, including local firefighters and police officers.

Registration for one team (adult/child) is $25. To register or for more details, visit http://chasechallenge.org.

Admission to Wannamaker County Park is $1 per person ages 2 and up.

Chase After A Cure’s mission is to raise awareness and money for childhood cancer research at the Medical University of South Carolina, specifically in the area of childhood cancer neuroblastoma.
