Five people from Ceduna, including Kris Knudsen, are taking part in the ‘Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen’, featuring people all over the world completing tasks within one week.
About 70,000 people signed up to take part this year and teams of 15 completing a series of 200 random tasks and uploading them online.
Ms Knudsen and her Sydney-based son have been paired with 13 other people from all corners of the globe, while others from Ceduna are all in different teams.
The scavenger hunt, founded by actor Misha Collins, raises money for the Random Acts charity, which helps people across the world.
Some of the tasks to be undertaken this week have included making a cartoon character drawing out of spices, creating a photocopy paper wedding dress, making a bikini out of banana peels, making a pizza based on a renaissance painting and a 3D footpath chalk drawing mashup of television shows ‘Supernatural’, ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Baywatch’.
Ceduna Area School student Ashley Sansbury-Tresize was helping Ms Knudsen with one of her designated tasks, the chalk drawing, on Thursday on Poynton Street.
“It is all about having fun, doing random and silly things to raise money for charity and networking with people all over the world,” Ms Knudsen said.
“It is about the adventure – some people want to be competitive and win, but others like to have fun and help Random Acts.
“My family and I did it a few years ago and had team members in Kazakhstan, so you meet so many people.”
She said one of her son’s tasks was to stand on the steps of the Sydney Opera House handing out coffees to strangers.
Once tasks are completed and uploaded they are given a score.
The team with the highest score across the 200 tasks wins a trip to Hawaii with Misha Collins.
