Nature Island Challenge-Go Team USA!

NICThese five adventurous women- Tara, Sarah, Madeline, Mercedes, and Jennifer-are part of the Ross community and will be representing the USA in Dominica’s Nature Island Challenge (NIC).  The NIC is where teams of athletes compete on Dominica’s Waitukubuli Trail  facing particular tasks that will test their physical stamina and cultural competence.  These sportswomen have been in beast mode getting ready for what lies ahead-running trails, swimming, hiking, cooking, creating, and exploring! You can read about the background of team USA here.

The Nature Island Challenge begins Monday April 7th and goes all the way through Friday April 11th.  Using social media is a big part of the challenge, before and during the competition. The participants will be using smart phones to capture their experiences and uploading their photos regularly. There are a couple of different ways to stay connected to the teams during the week:

I wish these ladies the best of luck!
