Despite the predicted thunderstorms, the Hickory Girls Varsity Soccer team arrived to blue skies at the Bill Rudge Ministries Ultimate Challenge & Obstacle Fitness Course last week. As usual, Bill began the session instructing the team about safety as well as life lessons that they would learn as they traversed the course. The girls attacked each station with great enthusiasm even when faced with difficult challenges. Teamwork was emphasized as they helped each other scale “the wall” and went through numerous stations to develop agility, balance, endurance, strength and courage, then laughed their way through the “blanket chariot race,” refrigerator box, and tug-of-war games.
BRM has coordinated the obstacle course activities for many school athletic teams, mission and youth groups, military personnel and other organizations as well as families.
