The Hullabaloo Family Obstacle Course is a thrilling, un-timed obstacle challenge established by Light of Chance’s Get Set Go Wellness Program. This unique mile-long race is designed to engage families and individuals of all ages and fitness levels in endless amounts of exciting entertainment. Combining teamwork, strength, and participation, Hullaballoo is one of the only obstacle challenges in the south-central area created for the entire family.
The course puts every family to the test with striking obstacles, including stations with balance beams, tire runs, cargo climbs, spider-web rope crawls and many more. During the race, participants are encouraged to use their physical and mental strength to fight to the finish line as a team.
Created on behalf of Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, the Hullabaloo race empowers participants to make healthy lifestyle choices and incorporate physical activity into their daily routine. Currently, 12.5 million children and adolescents in Kentucky are classified as overweight or obese (Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services) and are at risk for numerous health-related conditions. Light of Chance is igniting change through wellness programs and events, such as the Hullabaloo race, to combat those statistics.
