CLEAR CHALLENGE Obstacle Course

Who has the grit to win the trophy this year?  Will it be you? The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Team together with 24 SAPR Volunteer Victim Advocates, the Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention & Treatment Program and the Drug Demand Reduction Program/Drug Demand Reduction Office will host the Courage, Leadership, Education, Advocacy, and Respect (CLEAR) Challenge Obstacle Course on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at the War Fit Pavillion and surrounding areas. In the event of Rain, the event will be May 3.

The purpose of the CLEAR challenge is to raise awareness about the topics of sexual assault and substance abuse, to encourage bystander intervention and to build resilience in all Airmen.

The obstacle course challenges you physically and mentally with each station symbolizing the effects of substance abuse and sexual assault in an individual's life and the people around them. Every team member has a specific purpose or role in the group as they work through the course.  Each event will be timed separately by trained PTL’s and will not include the prevention modules that will call upon your bystander intervention skills in the final fitness score.

 

The hosts are recruiting teams of 6 to participate in the obstacle course. Your team can be made up of your unit members or office, or you can gather a team of Active Duty, Civilians, Guard, and Reserve and mix it up.  Please register by April 23, 2019, with this registration form. For more information call TSgt. Tahlia Robinson at 987-1900, or SrA Lauren Phipps at 987-1308.

Surviving in Numbers campaign

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, SAPR is kicking off a campaign that gives survivors an opportunity to tell their story via a poster. This is NOT in any way an official report, restricted or unrestricted, nor will it initiate one. It is a way for survivors to anonymously share their personal struggle and to help bring awareness to members of LRAFB. Members are also welcome to make their own poster at home and have someone else drop it off at the SAPR office. The posters will initially be displayed during the CLEAR challenge on April 25, 2019, at the WarFit Pavillion. Afterwards, they will be hung on display in the SAPR office. Please see the attached flyer!

SAPR, New Location Bldg 1240, Room 131 Bring posters to office BEFORE April 25, 2019, to be displayed at Warfit for CLEAR Challenge 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. 987-5502, 987-7119

C4 Motorcycle Clinic

Little Rock AFB will be hosting the spring C4 (Closed Course Cycle Clinic) on May 9 and 10.  For those who may be unfamiliar with the course, it is a 3/4 mile circuit-type, fine-skills course with speeds 20-60 mph.  It is a one-day, bike-performance course that includes visual awareness training, proper body position and hands-on practice in handling higher-speed braking and cornering maneuvers. Utilizing an in-depth, safety-first approach to visual awareness, effective turning, body positioning, braking, cornering, and building confidence at increased lean angles yields a greater level of both biker and bike capability.  In other words, riders can explore their capabilities and limits, as well as those of their bikes, in a controlled environment, and then learn how to apply those lessons where it really counts.

*This course is available to all motorcycle types.
*The course satisfies "Refresher" training requirements in MUSTT (as defined in AFI 91-207 Table 4.1).  Most DoD agencies require a refresher course every 5 years.
*To be eligible to attend this course students must have a motorcycle endorsement on their license.
*Attendees must be a card-carrying military member either active duty, guardsmen, retiree, or civilian government employee.
*Two course dates are available with a maximum of 24 students per day.

You must ride your own motorcycle.  It will undergo a tech inspection prior to entering the course.  Your motorcycle must be in good working order with no leaks, good tires, brakes, etc. and be street legal.  Please check proper tire pressure prior to showing.

*All motorcycles must be accompanied by a copy of current registration and insurance, or student will not be allowed to attend the course.
