The Viking Age would now like to take a break from worrying about Brett Favre, Percy Harvin and all the other stuff that’s got us so on-edge to talk about a fun event coming up next weekend in the Twin Cities.
Get Captivated – that’s the name of the event – is a SCVNGR trek through the city of Minneapolis. What happens is, you team up with a friend, then AT&T and Samsung give you one of their new Captivate phones, and you and your pal either put your sneakers on or get on bikes and run around the city performing challenges sent to you via the phone.
For each challenge you complete you will be awarded points. At the end of the day, the team with the most points wins a $10,000 home theater system.
And, most importantly, 100% of the proceeds from this go to the Angel Foundation, a charity dedicated to supporting adults and families touched by cancer.
So, you get to have a great time all over Minneapolis, and you get a chance to win a sick home theater system, and you’re helping a great charity.
To sign up, just visit getcaptivated.com. And don’t forget to enter VIKINGAGE where it says codeword. Spots are limited, and entering that special code will help you get in.

Oh, and try to score yourself an amazing home theater system to watch the Vikings‘ march to the Super Bowl on. Tell some friends and have them sign up too. It sounds like a great time.
