Questival
Looking for something—maybe an experience, an adventure, a friendship? That's what Questival is all about, all around the country and in Utah. It's a quest for something, but only you discover it during this experience. The 24-hour adventure race promises to push you out of your comfort zone. "Anyone can do it, but only the slightly neurotic thrive," the organizers say. "Teams rack up points by submitting challenges in the app. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams and winners of the prize challenges." Just to keep you guessing, you won't get a challenge list until 24 hours before the race. And you don't have to be a great athlete. "Think 'scavenger hunt on steroids' or 'Amazing Race' or 'choose your own adventure.'" And each racer gets a $40 Cotopaxi Luzon backpack and other swag just for participating. More info here. Big Cottonwood Park, 4300 S. 1300 East, Millcreek, Friday, July 28, 6 p.m., through Saturday, July 29, 7 p.m., $48, cotopaxi.com

QTalks
If you find it hard to sit through long, boring presentations, experience a new energy at Equality Utah's QTalks. The promise is for a high-speed, high-impact lecture series on issues that matter to Utah's LGBTQ community. Four speakers give 15-minute power talks, and this month features Jacob Tobia, a leading voice and educator on "genderqueer and non-binary topics," and poet Tanesha Nicole Tyler. Salt Lake City Public Library, 210 E. 400 South, Wednesday, Aug. 2, 7-8:30 p.m., free, equalityutah.org

Hunger Outreach
Never mind what "officials" say about giving to the homeless—food is kind of a necessity of life. So, don't consider it a handout. Each month, local volunteer group Legacy Initiative's Feed the Streets Outreach makes up to 900 burritos to distribute. They also give out other necessities like chapstick and sunscreen, as well as hygiene kits, granola bars and water. You can help in the kitchen, distribute on the streets or simply donate items or money to this critical cause. If you're interested in participating in the outreach program, email outreach@legacyinitiative.org. 423 S. 300 West, 801-899-9682, Sat., Aug. 5, 1-3 p.m., free, legacyinitiative.org
