Mark your calendar! Our 2020 event has been scheduled!

September 14th - 21st! This will be a week long event!! 

With the ever changing pandemic, and evolving safety precautions we are moving our one day in person event to a week long virtual event! We will be utilizing an amazing scavenger hunt app called Goosechase to complete challenges, get creative, and celebrate David and the spirit of Entrepreneurship! 

We are using the app Goosechase this year. Below is information on how you can participate! 

David Forster ’11 was an entrepreneur, a runner, a mentor and an inspirational force. For many, his guidance and encouragement was the spark needed to start a new challenge. Created to honor David’s memory and example, the Spark to Start is a team-based race throughout Saint John’s University, infused with a series of challenges – both physical and intellectual.
