United Way’s Champion Challenge at Castle Park is a first-of-its-kind fundraiser here in Southern Illinois!
Join The United Way of Southern Illinois, Castle Park and SIU’s Medieval Combat Club as brave attendees help raise money for The United Way by challenging Champions from SIU’s Medieval Combat Club with foam swords and medieval-style armor.
This event is all-ages and will take place November 10th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the very family friendly Castle Park. Entry to the event is free and weather forecasts show a likely temperature of 60 degrees and no chance of rain.
Challengers will pay $10 to challenge a Champion, winning prizes from The United Way of Southern Illinois if they are skilled enough to defeat the Champion they have challenged.
Attendees may challenge one another for a guaranteed prize by paying $20 and battling one another in a Challenger challenge.
Attendees ages 12 and younger will be allowed to challenge a Champion or another challenger to a mini-battle for free!
The United Way of Southern Illinois will also be on hand with resources and information for families and attendees for the upcoming winter season.
