Meet Me at Maynards (MMM), the weekly free social walk/run in downtown Tucson, will celebrate its 4th birthday with a party that includes a 4-mile walk/run, live bands, an amusing game, and BBQ. The event is sponsored by Tucson Medical Center.
More than 1000 “MMM athletes” are expected to gather for the celebration.
Walkers and runners along the route will be entertained by eleven local bands and musicians, including Guilty Bystanders, Tucson Pipers, Shameless Flirts, The Levinson Group, Cadillac Mountain and the Determined Luddites.
The festivities will also include a tax-day themed hunt game called, “Hunting Deductions,” which assumes each team has a “tax liability.” The teams will follow clues to eight different downtown locations, and must perform an activity to earn a stamp from the game “auditor.” Each stamp reduces the team’s tax liability. A perfect score will earn a “tax refund.” The refund is paid in tickets for a raffle drawing for gift certificates, mostly from downtown businesses.
At the completion of the game, a BBQ will be held in the courtyard of Hotel Congress.
When: Monday, April 15 from 5:15 to 8:00 p.m.
Where: Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress/Courtyard Entrance
Who: Adults and families of all ages
Cost: Event is free, BBQ is $9.00 per person
