2018 Event Co-Chairs: Rex and Jennifer Hudler

Rex and Jennifer Hudler are Co-Chairs of this year's event. The Challenger program holds a special place in their hearts. Their son, Cade, has participated in Challenger activities for the past five years.

Proceeds from Challenge Your Fashion this year will help build two additional baseball fields with synthetic turf that can also be used for other sports at the all-accessible Fred and Shirley Pryor YMCA Challenger Sports Complex.

The expansion will allow us to host regional Challenger activities and, most importantly, fulfill the dreams of even more children with special needs.
