The non-profit Patriot Highlander Challenge is a massive obstacle course built at Sunny Knolls Farm in the Town of Cobleskill, boasting the creation of six and three mile long endurance events. However, the most impressive aspect of this project is not its magnitude of obstacles but its mission of supporting local Veterans.
Inspired in part to raise funds for multiple pro-Veterans organizations - primarily Team Red, White and Blue and the Adaptive Sports Foundation - and to aid local Veterans reintegration into society, the Patriot Highlander Challenge was constructed in hopes of bridging a gap within our local wounded warrior population by uniting their inner challenger with their status as a Veteran.
Both Cobleskill Stone Products and Howe Caverns have signed on as "silver-star sponsors" of the Patriot Highlander Challenge, which is scheduled to take place on September 13th of next year, and starting this morning: so can you.
Registration for the challenge opens to the general public at eleven and costs $55 per person, with proceeds going to help local Veterans readjust to their communities after the hell of war in Iraq and Afghanistan cost thousands of soldiers limb and mental ease alike. Sponsorship is also available for those who would like to financially further the event's success.
So whether you are looking forward to scaling obstacles such as the "Battle of Saratoga," or to financially support this outstanding project's mission, you can do both at the The Patriot Highlander Challenge website or help spread the word via social media by liking their official facebook page.
