Participants of the 'Drive 2 Thrive' scavenger hunt beared the heat with their eye on the prize.
Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service hosted a mental mania scavenger hunt where participants hopped in their cars to solve clues and find mystery items at different locations to put together a big puzzle.
The winner of the scavenger hunt walked away with $1,000.
Friendship House CEO Marcellus Sommerville said the event helped engage participants with the church's mission of giving back.
"It gives everyone a chance to find out a little bit about what Peoria Friendship House Does," Sommerville said.
All proceeds from the event will fund resources for the community. Sommerville said the church plans to make 'Drive 2 Thrive' an annual event.
