Couples benefit physical fitness challenge rescheduled

Benefit now set for October 5

GREENVILLE — Area couples have a little longer to get in shape, as a benefit physical fitness challenge which had been scheduled for this weekend has been reset.

Rather than donating just money toward assisting the less fortunate in the area, the event will likely have the participants contributing sweat for a chance to win some cash prizes, while assisting Hunt County Shared Ministries (FISH).

The inaugural edition of the “Blended Generations Couples Challenge” is now scheduled to start at 9 a.m. October 5 at the Greenville SportsPark.

The challenge is for all couples ages 18 and above. Couples can sign up for the Challenge for $50, with a portion of the proceeds going to FISH. The entrants will compete in a series of events; from a barrel race to an eating race to a block jump and a tire jump. A “Fun For All” race will include leap frog, jump roping 100 times, an egg run, a sack race and a stick run. The “Final Challenge” involves a combination log run, solving a puzzle, flipping a 100 pound tire, a block chop and a 50-yard dash to the finish line.

The couples compete for a chance to win a share of the prize money, with $250 going to first place, $200 to second place and $150 for the third place couple.

Those interested in participating in the Challenge, or who may want additional information, can call 469-475-6946, 903-268-9774 or 214-422-7972. September 20 is the deadline to register for the event.
