KC Cache Dash 2012

Land Rover Merriam (Aristocrat Motors) and Garmin International have teamed up to bring us KC Cache Dash 2012. The KC Cache Dash will help support the YMCA of Greater Kansas City, Project Uplift, KidsTLC, and Sleepyhead Beds. The event “…combines GPS technology and social media connectivity to pit teams against one another in the search for treasure troves hidden across the metro area.” Meanwhile, the public can attend geocaching expos at Garmin and Land Rover Merriam. 

Here’s how it works. Four teams composed of a social media celebrity, a charity social advocate and a geocaching expert will search Kansas City on Saturday, March 24th. The team that collects the most points before the end of the challenge will be named the winner. The four teams include #TeamRange, which will be competing for KidsTLC; #TeamLR4, which will be competing for Project Uplift; #TeamEvoque, which will be scouring Kansas City for Sleepyhead Beds; and finally #TeamRRSport, which will be taking on the challenge for the YMCA of Greater Kansas City. Spectators can attend a geocaching expo Saturday morning at Garmin in Olathe, Kansas,  which is followed by a follow-on expo at Aristocrat Motors in Merriam, Kansas, at noon. Teams will be crossing the finish line before 4:00 at Aristocrat Motors.
