Leon County Cache Dash 2013 kickoff event

(Centerville, TX)— The Leon County Health Resource Commission will host a kickoff event for the first annual Leon County Cache Dash at 9:00 a.m. on February 23rd at Fort Boggy State Park. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. The kickoff will launch a four-week competition for residents across Leon County to see who can find the most hidden “caches,” or treasure. This activity is commonly referred to as geocaching. The event will feature a Geocaching 101 Training and take residents on their first cache hunt.

The Leon County Cache Dash is a family-friendly, high-tech treasure hunt that uses a global positioning system (GPS), or a smartphone with GPS capabilities, to find caches. The Leon County Cache Dash will provide participants with sets of coordinates for hidden caches within the county. Participants will record the number of caches they find in a passport, which will be provided at the Kickoff Event or will be available at the Leon Health Resource Center. After the four-week challenge, residents who turn their completed passports into designated locations across the county will receive a prize.

The Leon County Cache Dash is a great way for your family to be physically active and learn more about our community! You can register for the Cache Dash online, using the following link: http://www.behealthybrazosvalley.org/ health-resource-centers/leonhealth resource-center/leoncounty cache-dash-2013/ or at the Leon County Cache Dash Kickoff Event. Participants who preregister online will be entered in a drawing.
