Scavenger hunt hopes to find funds for autism

People across the region aregetting ready to go on a scavenger hunt for autism.

Teams across northern Michigan are getting ready to go on a scavenger hunt on Saturday all to help fund an autism program.

This is the second annual Traverse Traveler Scavenger Hunt for Autism. The hunt will send teams around the city through different stations to teach them about challenges children with autism sometimes face.

All the money raised through the scavenger hunt will go towards the Traverse City Area Public Schools' Ipads for Autism program that give students with autism spectrum disorders a tool in the classroom to help them learn more effectively.

Your team can sign up until Friday at 7:00pm.

Organizers for the hunt say you can still participate on Saturday by showing up at the Park Place dome in downtown Traverse City at 11:30am.
