Campus Champion

Participants ducked under ropes, carried friends on their backs through ankle deep water and tackled 3.5 miles of rugged terrain at the Lime Hollow Center for Environment and Culture on April 29. It was all part of the Great Cortlandia, a first-year adventure race dreamed up and organized by Colin Wilson, a senior kinesiology major from Fulton, N.Y. The four-person team relay brought the College’s passion for fitness into the community. And, perhaps more importantly, Wilson’s brainchild raised nearly $750 for the Wounded Warrior Project, a national charity that provides support for injured service members.
