Paint the Town Pink: Hindsight 20/20 Scavenger Hunt

Paint the Town Pink: Hindsight 20/20 Scavenger Hunt

You’ll be on a scavenger hunt for health, wellness and prizes

No one wants to be the person who says “if only.”

“If only I had scheduled an annual mammogram. If only I had used sunscreen. If only I had taken better care of myself.”

If hindsight truly is 20/20, let 2020 be the year to create a clear vision on wellness. Vow to take a proactive approach to cancer prevention and awareness. Grab your smart phone or tablet and join in on the Paint the Town Pink: Hindsight is 20/20 Scavenger Hunt from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 3.

The staff at Sweetwater Regional Cancer Center and Wyoming Cancer Resource Services will send you on a mission to better health. You will gain insight into your health, and have a chance to pick up goodies and important information during 10 different missions, said Eva Wasseen, a Cancer Center registered nurse.

You’ll also have a chance to win an assortment of prizes and earn points to be entered in a raffle to win bigger prizes including one of several gift cards valued up to $300.

Here’s how you can play:

  • Download the free GooseChase iPhone (IOS) or Android app to your phone or tablet.
  • Register as a guest or for a personal account with a username and password of your choice.
  • Search for Paint the Town Pink: Hindsight 20/20 Scavenger Hunt and follow the prompts.
  • The list of missions will not be accessible until 9 a.m. Oct. 3, but you can sign up any time before or during the hunt.
  • The game will be open until 2 p.m. so participants can complete some of the “at home” features when they’re done with the active part of the hunt.

Once you’re ready to play, your first mission is to drive to the Sweetwater Regional Cancer Center entrance at the back of the Specialty Clinics at 1180 College Drive. You’ll receive a bag full of goodies and instructions to help you along your way. Cancer team providers will be on hand to answer questions.

You’ll then drive off to your next mission. You’ll be asked to stop by the Broadway Theater and schedule a mammogram if you’d like. Schedulers with Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County, Aspen Medical Center and Rock Creek Imaging all will be available from 9 a.m. to noon in the Broadway Theater Lobby. Kelly Sugihara, WCRS Region V Coordinator, will be available to answer questions about free screenings.

You don’t have to wait until Oct. 3. You can schedule a state-of-the-art, comfortable 3D Mammography today by calling MHSC Central Scheduling at 307-362-6472.

At some stops, you’ll be asked to post a picture of yourself, watch attached videos or check into a location to join in on an activity. Free incentives will be available at some locations while supplies last. It’s all part of earning points to be entered in the 2 p.m. raffle drawing for bigger prizes such as a $50, $100 or $300 gift certificate.

“Everyone wins when they learn something new about cancer prevention and how to get and stay healthy,” Wasseen said.
