Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge (TKC) is an obstacle course event and fundraiser for Appleton Area School District's physical education departments featuring kid-friendly yet challenging obstacles. 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. 

The event will be held on the Highlands/Odyssey Elementary School, 2037 N. Elinor St. Appleton, WI 54914. The event date will be October 2, 2021. In lieu of wave starts, this year 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.

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.

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.

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.
