Veeder Teachers Takes Part in Rugged Raider Patriot Challenge

A group of Veeder Elementary School teachers ran, pulled,  lifted, carried and worked together for military families and veterans as part of the South Colonie and iCARES' Rugged Raider Patriot Challenge on Oct. 17, at Colonie Central High School.

Dressed up as the holidays, Mrs. Backus, Mrs. Huffland, Mrs. Raymond, Mrs. Reeves and Ms. Wyman braved the chilly weather to help raise money for a good cause.

They were among 50 South Colonie teams and 300 participants who challenged themselves to complete in 10 obstacles. The event was not a competition but rather, teams were judged on creativity, sportsmanship, cooperation and effort.

The Rugged Raider Patriot Challenge, sponsored by South Colonie iCARE, raised about $2,000 in support of military families and veterans.
