The tenth anniversary of Wisconsin Challenge Walk MS featured a new location at the idyllic Green Lake Conference Center. 2017 also featured new friends visiting from Minnesota’s Twin Cities Challenge Walk as well as a cameo appearance from Team N3kk1d’s ROCK MS on Friday night. Record 90-degree heat, coupled with several killer hills, made this year’s Challenge Walk truly challenging! Several of the event’s larger teams went mobile, handing out ice-cold water and towels to keep our walkers hydrated and cool. The weekend was truly an “all hands on deck” experience, bringing participants together in ways they could never have imagined.
While the punishing heat and high humidity took its toll on the walkers, Sloth very much enjoyed the full sun and the new venue to explore. The Green Lake Conference Center has a rich and unique history spanning back to the late 1800’s; the current facilities are a fascinating hybrid of past and present. At the backdrop throughout the weekend was the gorgeous Green Lake itself, Wisconsin’s deepest natural inland body of water. One could scarcely ask for better scenery… except, perhaps, Door County.
The videos and photos from each day are split into separate galleries, including Team LaDorkas’ pre-event shenanigans. Also available here is a special “tribute” video created by Sloth to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Wisconsin Challenge Walk MS.
