Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com)--- Duluth Mayor Don Ness got down and dirty this week, for a good cause.

It was part of the "Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen".

One of the tasks of the 15 person scavenger team was to have an elected official do yard work for less than minimum age to bring awareness to the hard work people often put in for such little pay.

The team talked Mayor Ness into busting out scissors and getting down on his hands and knees to cut the grass.

"I have agreed to give my services to this very worthy cause. As a Mayor who supports the increase in the living wage, I'm happy to also send that message," said Duluth Mayor Don Ness

The "Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has ever Seen" is put on by Mischa Collins of the C-W and supports the RandomActs Charity, a non-profit organization that funds inspiring acts of kindness around the world
