Can you finish the Essity Tough Kid Challenge?
What is the Essity Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge?
The Essity Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge is an Obstacle Course event. Last year the course was 1.55 miles and featured 30 obstacles that challenged the agility and strength of our participants. This year the course will be of similar distance with new twists and turns. The event is open to kids age 6 to 13 years of age. Cost of the event is $10 per participant. Parents can go with child for free. Parents just sign a waiver the day of the event. After September 14th, the cost will increase to $12 per participant.
The event will be held at Highlands Elementary School, 2037 N. Elinor St. Appleton, WI 54914.
The date of the event is Saturday, October 5th, 2019. The first wave of participants will start at 9:00 am. Registrants will be able to choose their starting time by which wave they sign up for during registration. Your starting wave will be titled "Start Time." Starting waves will send participants onto the course every 15 minutes with the last wave starting at 1:00 pm. Each wave will be limited to 125 participants with participants being sent out every 1 minutes starting with teams first. Next will be the 13 year old participants and their friends and family. 12 year old participants will be sent out after that and so on until that wave has had everyone sent out. The total participation for this event will be capped at 2000 youth participants plus the adults going with them. Due to the success of last year's event, we are anticipating this year's event to fill up fast. To assure participants getting the starting wave they want, early sign up is encouraged.
This is a fundraising event. Money raised will be placed in a grant fund. All Appleton Area School District's physical education departments will be eligible for this grant. Grants will be awarded to schools for innovative physical education programming.
