Local escape room business organizes a ‘Game it Forward’ day in support of displaced families of Fort Mcmurray.

EQ Pay it Forward Red Cross 2016



May 11th, 2016

For Immediate Release

(St. John’s, NL) Escape Quest, a local business specializing in one-of-a kind escape room adventures, is organizing a full-day fundraiser in support of Red Cross relief efforts to Fort McMurray. On Sunday, May 15th at 156 Duckworth Street, Escape Quest will be collecting public donations and will be personally donating 100% of the day’s room sales to the Red Cross. “In times of widespread loss, it’s important to create positive, fun and hopeful spaces that foster acts of kindness and goodwill”, explains Escape Quest co-owner Kevin Noseworthy. “Our passion is gaming, and this is our small way to offset the hardship and grief felt by so many of our friends, families and neighbours.”

Throughout the entire day, Escape Quest is encouraging the public to ‘Game it Foward’ by booking any of their four escape room adventures. “Whether you are our biggest fan or have never heard of us until now, we want folks to come out and play, have tons of fun, and support a really great cause” says co-owner, Mark Denine. Less than a year old, owners of the young business hope to break record sales with the goal of selling all available rooms. “We are hoping for a big day and are excited to donate every bit of it to the Red Cross” says Denine. Escape Quest chose the Red Cross as the Federal Government has committed to matching all donations to their Fort McMurray relief initiative.

To learn more about Escape Quest or to participate in ‘Game it Forward’ book your escape adventure for Sunday, March 15th online or by calling 221-EPIC.

The Gameitforward day is a great initiative, and I applaud the escape room business for organizing this event. I will be taking part in this event with my friends. I’ll make sure that we support the families as much as we can.
