JUNEAU - The opening ceremony for this year's Eagles vs. Ravens Wellness Challenge began Thursday with a ceremony at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall in the Andrew Hope Building downtown.
The annual six-week event to promote exercise is sponsored by the South East Alaska Regional Health Consortium. Registration continues from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the Gruening Park Recreation Center.
Participants compete by walking, bicycling, chopping wood, running and participating in other recreational exercise. The event is based on traditional clan competition, though teams can be made up of a mix of Eagles, Ravens and non-Natives.
