HeartChase Gloucester, an event held Saturday morning along Gloucester’s Main Street, raised more than $20,000 for the American Heart Association. Over 60 teams of two to five people each met at a central location near the colonial courthouse and used the HeartChase app on their smartphones to navigate around the game map, completing unique checkpoint challenges along the way.
