Are You Warhawk Nation Strong?
Sept. 7 - Nov. 1
Over 8 weeks, teams of six Warhawk Residents will take on a series of physical challenges (to be done on their own time) to earn points, starting with mild daily challenges that increase in difficulty as the weeks pass. Each week challengers will have the opportunity to participate in instructional sessions led by one of our AUMazing sponsors. At the final meet of the Warhawk Wellness Challenge on November 1, scores from the 8-week challenge will be tallied, and teams will go head-to-head in a timed physical and mental obstacle course to earn $300 each and the title of Fall 2014 Warhawk Warriors. The Resident with the HIGHEST overall scores will win $300, FREE Dining/Bookstore Schoolarship, and the title of The Fall 2014 Ultimate Warhawk Warrior.
So, are you Warhawk Nation Strong?
