After the success of World TEAM SportsAdventure 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.
