Who has the grit to win the trophy this year? Will it be you? The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response team in partnership with the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment program and the Drug Demand Reduction office will host the courage, leadership, education, advocacy, and respect, or CLEAR, challenge obstacle course April 25 at the War Fit Pavilion. In the event of rain, the event will be held 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 CLEAR challenge is an obstacle course that challenges Airmen physically and mentally. Each station symbolizes 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 obstacle course. Each event will be timed separately by trained physical training leaders and will not include the prevention modules that will call upon bystander intervention skills in the final fitness score. This will allow true fitness times to be added together at the end of the event to determine the best team, as breaks for the SAPR and DDR prevention activities will not hinder your overall time.
We are recruiting teams of six to participate in the obstacle course. Teams can be made up of members from the same unit, or they can be made of a mix of active duty, civilians, guard, and reserve.
The 2019 course will challenge Airmen physically and mentally while being more difficult than last year.
