World TEAM Sports is pleased to partner with American Portfolios and The Center for Discovery on the Adventure TEAM Challenge event in Frost Valley, New York September 23-26, 2010. The Center for Discovery, located in nearby Harris, New York, offers residential, educational and therapeutic services for both children and adults with a wide range of disabilities.
After the success of World TEAM Sports’ Adventure TEAM Challenge held in Leadville, Colorado this past June, the Center for Discovery partnered with WTS to create a similar event for their athletes. A four-stage Adventure race including a lake challenge, an orienteering challenge, a climbing challenge up Slide Mountain and a bikers challenge will make up the Adventure TEAM Challenge in New York.
Participants will be divided into 5 teams consisting of two athletes per team, “The Magnificent Ten.” These athletes have a wide range of disabilities, and each team will consist of one wheelchair-bound athlete and one intellectually disabled athlete. The teams will complete the lake and orienteering challenges on Saturday and the Slide Mountain Climbing and bikers challenge on Sunday.
