Challenge Life...

(Click the picture for the Challenge Life link)

"The past five years, the “Challenge Life Youth Foundation” has played a significant role in improving the mental and physical wellness of citizens living on the Arctic Slope and Northwest Coastal regions of Alaska. “Challenge Life” has introduced education programs in reading, writing, social studies, mathematics and science in a creative and exciting format. They have initiated health, nutrition and anti-drug programs to people of every age. Finally, they have worked closely with local citizens and business organizations to establish professional training and a local mentoring program."-Challenge Life Mission Statement

We had an opportunity to listen to Mr. John (JD) Doiser about challenge life and what his organization does for students in Alaska, specifically in smaller villages. The students listened very well and took away some knowledge about living a better, healthier life. Today they are able to participate in a camp that Mr. Doiser is putting on for the students-Hopefully I will update with pictures later...

This is such a great opportunity for the students, and I only wish that it could be more frequent having these organizations take some interest in our children.

Thanks Mr. Doiser!

Here are some pictures:

Cute right? They had a lot of fun!
