10th Annual Baehr Challenge Obstacle Course Race

Come experience the POWER OF TEN!

We invite you to be a part of the Baehr Challenge, help us to celebrate the Power of 10 and make a difference for people living with Parkinson’s and their families. The Baehr Challenge has grown from a few family and friends participating in a morning of fitness in a local public park to hundreds of people (including people with Parkinson’s) taking the challenge to compete in an obstacle course race.

We’ve discovered along the way that it’s not how fast you can run/walk and complete the obstacles. It’s about how many people can you help take the challenge along the way. It’s about a smile, a handshake, a pat on the back and a word of encouragement. We celebrate YOU and the Power of 10 years of family, friends and fun.

The Baehr Challenge is one of the top Team Fox events in the Southwest and has raised more than $158,000 since its inception in 2010 thanks to your continued support and participation. Our goal is to raise $42,000 this year to reach a total of $200,000 donated to fund scientific research for better treatments and a cure. YOU can help us reach our goal by registering for the 10th Annual Baehr Challenge Obstacle Course Celebration, inviting 10 family/friends to join your team, buy 10 raffle tickets, make a $10 donation, invite your family/friends to make a $10 donation

The Baehr Challenge consists of teams of 2 or more participating in a staggered-start obstacle course designed for all fitness levels and all ages including individuals, families and people with Parkinson’s. Crawl through tubes and a spider web, over walls, under nets, balance across a bridge, climb a hay bale mountain, jump over hay bales and maneuver an inflatable with your family and friends in a morning you will never forget.
