About The Challenge
Saturday September 16th, 2017
The Orangewood Adventure Challenge is an exciting, demanding and fun, multi-sport team-based adventure race. It covers a range of outdoor activities to test the boundaries of both brain and body. Adventurers don’t need to be professional athletes or experts in all disciplines. The event is about working, training and competing together as a team, across a course designed to test and push your limits…and raising funds for Orangewood’s programs that help foster and community youth thrive and prosper.
The event was created by Orangewood Foundation and Board member Paul Tobin to raise money for college scholarships for former foster youth. It is based on an annual event in Australia created by Paul in 2008 that has raised over $2.8 million (U.S.) for a local nonprofit. Watch the video below for highlights of the Inaugural Orangewood Adventure Challenge in which teams raised over $126,000!
