The Ultimate #CLE Wedding Chase

This event will also raise much needed funds and bring awareness to the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL) and Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter.   Since they receive no government funding, they rely on generous financial supporters to make a difference in the lives of the animals for which they care for. The Cleveland Animal Protective League’s mission is to foster compassion and end animal suffering AND Making Happily Ever Afters!!
We are looking for enthusiastic, confident and dedicated couples to join The Ultimate #CLE Wedding Chase. The Ultimate #CLE Wedding Chase is a game where engaged and married couples race across different Northeast Ohio cities competing to win the wedding of a lifetime. During this exciting race, couples will solve riddles and complete mental and physical challenges in order to receive the next clue that will bring them closer and closer to the Grand Prize. A wide variety of businesses, both wedding related and non-wedding related, have agreed to participate in The Ultimate #CLE Wedding Chase by handing out clues to each couple that finds them and moves on to the next challenge. Travel between destinations can include automobile, boats, train, taxi, bus or couples may simply travel by foot. The last couple to arrive at each leg may risk elimination. The last five couples will be in the running to be eligible to win the wedding of a lifetime. The first couple to cross the “finish line” at the Expo will win their dream wedding from the various wedding vendors they have visited along The Chase. The Chase has been designed around working couples and both partners are not required to be present together at all of the vendor destinations. All of the challenges will require the presence of both partners.
