Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge

The 2021 TKC gave us an opportunity to connect with all of our elementary schools and provide a community family event for our youth to participate in a fun, healthy activity. It was a tremendous success with over 1,300 youth participating in the event!

We so appreciate the support we received to make the Tough Kid Challenge such a successful event. Thank you to all of the teachers who volunteered their time and talents!

The Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge is an obstacle course event and fundraiser for Appleton Area School District's physical education departments. This event is for all kids age 6 through 13 years of age.

Participants will travel through the course in spaced intervals to allow for flexibility in family schedules and maximum participation throughout the entire event. Participants will receive an event T-shirt and a medal.

The event date will be October 2, 2021. The TKC course will open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 1:00 p.m. Participants may complete the course whenever it is convenient for them.



Cost of the event is $10 per participant. Parents can go with their child for free by signing a waiver the day of the event, but will not receive a T-shirt or medal. After September 11th, the cost will increase to $12 per participant. 

The event will be held at Highlands Elementary School, 2037 N. Elinor St. Appleton, WI 54914.

Last year the course was 1.55 miles and featured 30 obstacles that challenged the agility and strength of our participants. This year the course will be of similar distance with new twists and turns. 

A portion of raised money will benefit every elementary student who attends the Appleton Area School District. Each school will be eligible for a grant to enhance their physical education programs. Our goal is to spotlight being physically active as well as raise money to advance healthy initiatives.
