Kids Ninja Charity Challenge FAQ:

Interested in volunteering?  We can use you!  SIGN UP NOW!

We have teamed up with Mary Beth Knight of Revolution Fitness, a local Ninja gym.  Mary Beth is designing a kids’ version of a Ninja course here in Loveland at Symmes Township Park. 

Instead of individuals competing, kids will compete as teams.  Teams of 3 kids each will compete within their age groups to overcome different obstacles. They will be challenged to move through their age-appropriate obstacle course as a team, no one can be left behind! 

The obstacles will include climbing, balance beams, running through tires, jumping, sliding and more.   There will be awards for top performing teams and there will be vendors for food and drinks to refuel.

This will be a gathering of the community, cheering the kids on throughout the day.  Our intention is for this to be an annual event that all will look forward to each year!
