The Cincinnati Scurry

Cincinnati Scurry celebrates 10 years

You’re Invited to
Scurry for Mental Health

Keep scrolling to learn about the unique fundraiser that past participants rave is “the most fun you can have on a Friday afternoon in Cincinnati!”

In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we unfortunately have decided to postpone to a later date in 2020. Thanks again to the Greater Cincinnati community for its commitment and sponsorship of mental health initiatives.

In the Cincinnati Scurry, TiER1 Performance joins forces with local business owners and community members to activate mental health awareness in Cincinnati through this unique fundraiser. Keep scrolling to learn about the cause and how you can join in the action!

The day starts with the Scurry Team Competition, a team-based scavenger hunt / race around Covington to solve puzzles, answer local trivia, and complete challenges for bragging rights. Following the competition is the Scurry Block Party, a free community event featuring live music, food, beverages, games, and more. At the heart of all this fun is our cause: mental health.

Scurry Team Registration

To qualify for the Scurry Team Competition, each team must submit a donation of $2,000. Teams can include 2-4 participants. Once you assemble the team (and pick a Scurry Team Name), be sure to join the conversation on social media and share why you’re Scurrying. At this time, registration is paused, but you can always get a headstart on some (friendly) team trash talk!

Why Do We Scurry?

Mental illness is a serious public health issue in Greater Cincinnati as it is across the nation, with 1 in 5 people (adults and teens) experiencing a mental health condition each year. This year’s Scurry will benefit three local organizations that are working tirelessly to support teens through their journey to mental health:

  • Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center – leading community resilience through Adapting for Life, a mental health program with tools for navigating stress and thriving.
  • The Lindner Center of HOPE – a center of excellence providing patient-centered, scientifically advanced care for individuals suffering with mental illness.
  • The Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky – a community leader in service of providing children and families with support, opportunity, and hope for better lives.

To empower these organizations to continue supporting mental health in Greater Cincinnati, TiER1 invites the entire community to join in this incredible partnership of organizations and individuals to help make Scurry 2020 a success. Consider making a donation to the cause:

Previous Scurry Champions

Last year’s Scurry participants raised over $51,000 to support mental health initiatives! In addition to recruiting teams for the Scurry Team Competition, we encourage the Cincinnati community to donate on behalf of a registered Scurry Team through Eventbrite. All donations go to our beneficiary organizations, and the Scurry Team that drives the greatest amount of fundraising dollars will get a special prize at the Scurry Block Party. We also encourage everyone to come show support for mental health by attending the Scurry Block Party!
