What is a "Grit 'N Wit Challenge" and what can I expect on the day of the event?

The Grit 'N Wit challenge is "Where Brain Meets Brawn" and will feature a series of challenges and obstacles, from mental puzzles, climbing, jumping, walking, and team building activities. Participants can do as many or as few obstacles as they choose and there is variety in terms of physical and mental obstacles, making this an accessible event for everyone from children to adults.

Participants will have the option to compete for a prize and be scored on total time taken to complete the obstacle course. Prizes include shirts, water bottles, sunglasses and other swag. Competitors can work solo or in teams, but teams do not need to compete if they choose not to. Teams of 4+ receive a group discount for tickets. Adult tickets are $25 each and groups of 4 pay $90.

On the day of the event, participants will check in with The Cove staff table and then be directed to the Grit 'N Wit staff, who will provide wristbands and time the attendees who choose to compete.

Who does this event help?

This event helps the hundreds of grieving children that The Cove serves each year through comprehensive programs to offer hope and healing and reduce negative outcomes associated with unresolved childhood grief. The Cove's Family Program meets twice monthly and offers children and their caregivers a safe space to process their grief, talk about it with a licensed clinician and others who understand, as well as a place to participate in fun activities to bond with others and inspire hope. Camp Compassion, an overnight bereavement support camp for children and teens offered by The Cove, includes therapeutic ceremonies to honor loved ones, space to connect with others, and traditional enjoyable activities. Outside of these core programs, The Cove also offers several virtual programs for teens, young adults, and caregivers. All Cove programs are completely FREE to grieving families.

We need YOUR support to keep these programs free and hope to see you there!
