St. Thomas Hosts Veterans Games Sept. 29

St. Thomas is hosting the Twin Cities Veterans Games on Sept. 29, bringing together veterans from colleges and universities around the area to compete for a traveling trophy.

Four-person teams and individuals will compete from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. in O'Shaughnessy Stadium in eight challenges: USMC CFT; tire flip; pull ups; down-and-backs; long run; build a house; stretcher run; and tug of war.

"This gives us a chance to host student veterans from around the Twin Cities; we can connect with each other and expand our network," said Norman Ferguson, director of veterans services at St. Thomas. "I feel that this is one more step we can take to come together as a community."

The fee for participating schools is $35.
