This past Sunday Tatiana-Rose Becker, CAMERA’s Southern Region Campus Coordinator, and I, CAMERA’s Midwest and West Coast Campus Coordinator, volunteered at the CJP “Amazing Israel Race” based at Boston University’s Hillel, and drawing students from surrounding schools. The race consisted of 40 teams who were all competing for an amazing prize, money towards a flight to Israel.
The teams ran around the Boston University campus reading clues and completing tasks at eight different stations. I, along with Tatiana and ZOA’s New England Campus Coordinator, Jonathan Ginsburg, ran the mock “IDF Basic Training Station.” In order to receive a stamp on the teams “passport,” all team members had to participate in some physical activities including jumping jacks, sit-ups, push-ups, and much more.
The “Amazing Israel Race” was a large-scale, well-planned event that can be altered into a smaller scale version that you can do on your campus. It was fun and exciting, and a great way to spend all day outside in the beautiful weather.
