The Great Unknown Challenge

Hale’s Brewery

Sat., May 20, 9 a.m.–1 p.m. (Registration deadline is May 12) The Great Unknown Challenge is an exhilarating event that will test your ability to conquer unknown challenges while supporting the Lupus Foundation of America. These challenges will require the use of your brain, brawn and/or sense of adventure. Some challenges will be truly unique and, in some cases, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We are NOT an obstacle course event, a scavenger hunt or an urban race. We DO have a beer garden! So what the heck are we? Register and you’ll find out on event day! Event is 21+. www.thegreatunknownchal
