Campers begin the Penguin Challenge at Homestead Park - The Vindicator

Xavier Weaver, 12, was so set to begin the Penguin Challenge Tuesday at Homestead Park that he did not even have time to give a reporter his last name.

Instead, after stretching at the start of an obstacle course and saying he wanted to win, he ran off.

The challenge is sponsored by the city police department, Youngstown State University and the Parks and Recreation Department.

The Penguin Challenge will be at the park at 3 p.m. every Tuesday through July 30. In the challenge, there will be a weekly fitness test for kids that will conclude with a final challenge, where kids will compete in a combination of all the events for a grand prize.
