On Sunday, November 13th, 6 members of the Cook Chapter participated in the NJ Tough Mudder, a 12 mile obstacle course. One group ran the course in blue and yellow tie dye shirts to represent Alpha Zeta. The training for this course started back in early spring. The team members would go on runs and work out together for the months beforehand. On the course, many of the obstacles required teamwork to get each person through, making the chapter members closer. Some of the obstacles included large wooden walls that the team had to get over, monkey bars, mountains of mud and hay, cargo nets, and a half pipe that participants had to run up while others helped them reach the top. Other chapter members came to watch and support the AZ participants through the course. Each participant paid an entry fee, with part of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps warriors returning from the battlefield.
