ReALLIEty Challenge to help wounded veterans

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

If you like to stay fit and test your skills - then the upcoming re-Alliety Challenge my be for you. Local fitness trainer Allie Ieyoub is organizing the 3.5 mile obstacle course filled with military-style maneuvers.

"We are calling it the 'dirtiest party in town,' because you can expect to get dirty climbing under and running through he mud. There are surprises around every corner," said Ieyoub. "Today we spent most of the day building the rest of the obstacles. We still have about another couple of weeks to complete everything."

Ieyoub said the idea came from similar events across the country and felt this was one Lake Charles would support.

"We already have over 300 people signed up. There is something for everyone. You don't have to be fit. Some people do it for time, some people do it for fun. Doesn't matter what your fitness level is. If you can't do an obstacle you can go around it. No problem," explained Ieyoub.

The event is Saturday, March 31st. To find out how to register you can click here. Registration ends March 16th. All proceeds go to the non-profit organization "The Mission Continues," which helps wounded veterans coming back to civilian life find jobs.
