    var city = document.getElementById("city").value;
    var county = document.getElementById("county").value;

    var theirChoices = [];
    var x = 0;
    while (x < 20) {
        choice = document.getElementById(activityNum[x]).checked;
        if (choice == "1") {
            var choice = activityName[x];
        } else {

You have 19 activities but you're trying to access the 20th one, which crashes your script.
Counting starts from 0.

Also, feel free to increment x outside of the if statement, since you increment it either way.

if (choice == "1")
