Surviving the Challenge
Teams participate in an obstacle course during this year's Beach Survival Challenge at Grand Haven State Park June 22. The Beach Survival Challenge stems from a tragedy that occurred in 2002. A 17-year-old boy drowned after getting caught in a rip current in Lake Michigan, inspiring his mother to develop a fun event designed to raise awareness about rip currents and other water dangers such as pier jumping, so that swimmers may safely enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan.
