An upcoming fundraiser aims to put participants to the test based on their knowledge of local history and trivia, physical challenges and what they're calling "some Angeleno road warrior savvy."

Taking place on Saturday January 30th, 2010, the inaugural Great City of Angels Scavenger Hunt is being put on by members of the Spring 2010 Westside Marathon team of Team in Training (TNT) who are looking to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Here's how the event works:

Participants, in teams of two, will be asked to solve ten clues, which involve physical and mental exercises, designed to take them on a fascinating tour of the City of Angels. The top three teams able to do this the fastest with the most accuracy will win great prizes.

The day starts and ends in Griffith Park, and the hunt organizer Kelly Conn thinks that it will be an exciting opportunity for locals to engage by "learning about pop culture landmarks and a bit of architectural history, challenging themselves by doing something active, and raising money for a worthy cause."Early registration is $55 per participant ($65 Jan. 11-27). Space is limited, so sign up now!
