"We are in a men’s study at Madison Park and this past year’s theme was adventure," Seelbach explained. "Someone said we should go on an adventure, climb a mountain or something, so we did."

The group of men ranging in age from 33 to 62-years-old rented their equipment, met their guides and began to hike Mt.

I will be lifting, running, and swimming to get into the best shape of my life,” said Cody Young, Anderson University senior and Raven baseball team captain. “Opportunities like this only come once in a lifetime, so I want to make sure I give my best effort in my senior campaign.”
