Thank you for the adventure on June 4!
What an adventure! The hot weather didn't seem to damper the laughter and fun on Sunday during Adventurama. Although it "wasn't a race", the first team to complete the 12 challenges was Hennepin's own David Hilden and Suzanne Schwartz who came in under a blazing 90 minutes. This new fundraiser attracted 74 team participants, 54 volunteers and 18 sponsors. Together their donations and fundraising efforts brought in over $65,000. Proceeds will benefit programs that enhance patient comfort and care in our hospital. Programs like Spiritual Care, Child Life in Pediatrics, Music Therapy and lodging for out-of-town families.
Hennepin Healthcare Foundation introduces Adventurama, an urban experience in downtown Minneapolis. This fundraiser invites teams of two adults to complete challenges within a three-mile radius of HCMC. Starting at The Commons (park across from US Bank Stadium), teams will earn points by completing both mental and physical challenges at 12 pit stops. This is not a timed course, go at your own pace and complete as many challenges as you like. Get ready to enjoy a barrel relay, bean bag toss, stair climb, CPR and more.
Teams receive: access to free parking, free limited edition event buff, free beverage at the after-party, and countless memories.
KARE 11's Reggie Wilson will start the event at 10am. Complete the course by 2pm at your own pace and enjoy an after-party at Finnegans anytime from 1:00-4:00pm.
For 130 years and counting, Hennepin Healthcare has been a fixture in downtown Minneapolis serving the community. Our doors are open to all who need care. You count on us to lead during disasters, through pandemics, heart attacks and trauma. Now let's have fun.

What is Patient Comfort and Care?
The magic of Hennepin Healthcare is who we serve. As our state’s largest safety-net hospital by a wide-margin, our mission keeps our doors and hearts open to all. With over 75% of our patient population on financial assistance, our revenue does not always cover the services that enhance the care and comfort of those we are so honored to serve.
This means there is a lot of space for philanthropy. Proceeds from Adventurama, and other events throughout the year, will support spiritual care, emergency clothing closet, music therapy, immediate food support, appointment transportation, out-of-town family lodging, prescription co-pays, Child Life in pediatrics.
You can put the fun in fundraising and empower the health of our community through your participation. You never know if you or someone you love will be a direct beneficiary.
