Answering the Call of Duty
There's no life like it.
So when the Students In Free Enterprise team at BCIT were looking for a way to support the school's Legion Military Skills Conversion Program, they went right to the very people the program helps get back on a path to higher education.
With help from members of the Royal Westminster Regiment, they designed a military-style obstacle course for their first "Call of Duty" race to raise funds for the program.
Teams of students scrambled under cattle wire, high-stepped through tires, carried and hauled jerry cans heavy with water, squeezed under and jumped over sawhorses and shoveled sand in a race against the clock. All were challenges meant to simulate skills needed by soldiers in the field, whether in a conflict or helping out at a civil emergency.
