“Building Brighter Futures”

Video from the 2014 Spirited Chase event.


WFYI invites you to DREAM with us about “Building Brighter Futures” as you join us on a journey around Indianapolis during the 7th Annual Spirited Chase on Saturday, November 14th. Part of the 2015 Spirit and Place Festival, this interactive on-the-go program offers you the chance to visit five secret locations in search of understanding the various ways in which members of our community are living their dreams.

During your "chase," you will be given an envelope at each destination with information about your next location. The envelope includes precise directions for driving and parking. The five community partner venues are unique and each will offer its own creative and engaging brand of "dream”. Come prepared to be a little daring and to maybe get a bit dirty. (Outdoor and hands-on activities are a definite possibility!) You will have the chance for photos along the way, a lunch stop, and a time for reflection and feedback at the end of the day. (Please note: WFYI will try to accommodate dietary requests and participants with needs that cannot be met will be notified prior to the event.)

So get ready to DREAM with us as you join us on a day-long adventure around Indianapolis!


Do I need to participate in the whole event?
No, but we hope you do! There will be 5 locations.
Are children welcome?
Yes, but the event is best suited for children 14 years of age or older.
Can I change team members?
Yes, but we need to have final confirmation of team members before November 12.
What constitutes one-car-load?
         Car loads are limited to 8 persons per vehicle.
Are the sites accessible?
Most locations are ADA compliant. WFYI staff and volunteers will do their best to assist those with disabilities, however.
Will there be rest facilities along the way?
Yes, the venues will have facilities available.
Should I bring water or snacks?
Please do! We will provide light breakfast, snacks, and lunch.
Is this rain or shine?
Yes! Dress for mess! Rain or shine, hot or cold, messy or clean ... we're taking you there! (Tennis shoes really are a must and skirts/dresses are not recommended. Check the morning forecast and bring an umbrella, if needed.)
Will I need any extra money?
Perhaps, but that's because you might wish to purchase an item from a location.
Will you tell me where I'm going?
Yes, indeed, but only by printed instructions at the previous stop. No information about destinations will be revealed in advance. 

PLEASE also check your email on the morning of November 14 in case of any last minute changes.
