The first ever GORUCK Teamwork Challenge will take place at BES on Friday, November 3rd. The GORUCK event is designed to create a team-building experience centered on the shared values of Beaches Episcopal School and US Special Forces. Led by an experienced combat veteran of Special Operations, classes will complete light physical and mental challenges as a team. These challenges will reinforce the BES Honor Code, which is to uphold the values of respect, integrity, and responsibility. Below is the schedule for our different grade level students.
Lower School: Pre-K 3 to 2nd Grade 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.
Upper School: 3rd Grade to 6th Grade 1:15 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
The weight in your rucksack aka backpack makes it rucking. The amount required for the GORUCK event depends on your grade level. If you are in Pre-k to 2nd grade, you need a filled water bottle and a stuffed animal (not your favorite) in your backpack. If you are in 3rd to 6th grade, you need a filled water bottle plus one can of food (that will be donated to BEAM).
WHAT TO BRING
A rucksack or backpack, your weight requirement (see above), and a water bottle filled with water.
