Raid Cross 2013: Are You Game?

Students in Red Cross t-shirts

Hiding from enemy snipers, assisting the wounded on the battlefield, and experiencing the fears of becoming a prisoner of war. These are just some of the many role-playing simulations that will take place at this year’s Raid Cross Event on June 7, 2013 from 10 am -4 pm.

Are you game? Come join other area high school students for a day of exploring the international humanitarian law, which protects human life and dignity during times of war. Each participant will make their way through a series of posts, requiring split-second decisions and team-work to make it by each checkpoint and obstacle. As part of IMPACT Day, an annual celebration of commitment to community involvement, local employees of Deloitte will be our event facilitators, ensuring a successful day for all involved. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on site by Bozzelli’s Deli in Springfield.
