Challenge Champions

Pierce City High School track

This year Verona R-VII will be participating in the Pierce City Challenge Champions track and Field Event Pierce City will be hosting the third annual Challenged Champions Field Day for individuals with disabilities aged 10 to 110 in Barry and Lawrence Counties. The event will be held here at the Pierce City track on Friday, May 16. The first two events have been amazing! Unfortunately, we have not had many school-aged participants, but we have had several adults with disabilities. In an effort to get more student participation, we have moved the event to a Friday. 

We haven’t concluded our planning, but intend to begin registration around 9:30 and wrap-up by 2:00 so that districts have a better opportunity to transport students. Events that we have had in the past include 50 yard dash, 100 yard dash, softball throw, Frisbee throw, relay race, and an Art/Crafts tent. So that we can better plan this year’s event, please let me know as soon as possible if your district will plan to transport students.
