WAYMO (What Are You Made Of) Challenge has been designing and hosting adventure races and obstacle courses for communities across Nebraska.  WAYMO was designed to help motivate people to train, compete and connect both online and offline.  As part of their mission, 50% of the profits from each event goes towards veteran charities to thank those who have protected our families and provided the freedoms we enjoy.  This fall, WAYMO will be able to take a slightly more direct role in supporting our military veterans.

Working with the Midlands Community Foundation, the founders of WAYMO designed an event to specifically support and provide for the Nebraska Fallen Soldiers Memorial to be placed at camp Ashland.  Additionally, a scholarship program will be set up with the remaining funds raised.  The event itself will be held Saturday October 6th, and everyone involved is reaching out to the community and to businesses/organizations for additional involvement, sponsorships and donations.  Competitors will have the option of running the full WAYMO Challenge course (5K plus obstacles) or joining others in the 1 mile walk.  There will also be a great deal of vendors, sponsors, games, community groups, food, and special guests.
