The Sixth Annual Gumshoe 5K Walk raised a record $4,800 for three local nonprofits.

The neighborhood scavenger hunt sold 265 entry forms, and organizer Mike Veitenhans estimated that more than 500 people participated. The nearly $4,800 proceeds will be divided equally among the Greenwood Senior Center, Greenwood Food Bank and Greenwood Elementary School PTA.

A group of Gumshoers.

Prize winners were drawn from all completed ballots:

  • Michaela Hutfles — $250 Fred Meyer gift card
  • Doug Collins — $150 Fred Meyer gift card
  • Bart Carroll — $100 Fred Meyer gift card
  • Lee Harper — Breakfast at Mae’s Cafe and a Day at the Woodland Park Zoo for Four
  • Elizabeth Farr — $25 gift certificates to nine local restaurants (Eatsy Street Game)
  • Stephanie Magill — Two tickets to Taproot Theatre (the MiniGumshoe Contest built into this year’s Gumshoe)

Though the main event is over for this year, 23 MiniGumshoe Contests (other than Taproot’s) run through Wednesday, Aug. 17, at local businesses, so there’s still time to play and win prizes. Details at DoTheGumshoe.org.

Dates for the Seventh Annual Gumshoe 5K Walk are Aug. 3-12, 2012.
