Are you a ninja warrior? Here’s your chance to find out
WACO, Texas (KWTX) Fans of NBC’s hit show “American Nina Warrior,” now in its 12th season, can test their limits on an “American Ninja Warrior” obstacle course and in the process, help raise funds for a local nonprofit that helps children who face real limitations in their lives.
An “American Ninja Warrior” obstacle course will be open to the public on June 5 at BASE at the Extraco Events Center and every dollar raised from ticket sales will be donated to No Limitations, a local nonprofit which helps kids with disabilities play sports.
Tickets are available online.
Multiple warriors including six-time national finalists Karsten Williams, three-time American Ninja Warrior Jared Greer, and two-time competitor Justin Hobbs of Lorena are bringing the event to Waco through the nonprofit, Overcoming Obstacles.
Greer founded the ministry in 2016 to help others who were overcoming obstacles, and Hobbs has a nephew part of No Limitations in Waco.
No Limitation athletes will have first shot at the course and be able to enjoy it alone from 10:30 a.m. until noon on June 5.
The course will be open to the public Saturday afternoon.
“This event is to support No Limitations but it’s open to anyone who wants to come hang out and experience what it’s like to be a real ninja,” Hobbs said.
“We’ll have large obstacles similar to what you see on the show. Obstacles like the salmon ladder, the warped wall, and many others. And if you’re not quite ready for the show, no worries. There will be plenty of small scale and adaptive obstacles as well. Something to do with the entire family,” he said.
Colleen Heaton, the founder and CEO of No Limitations has been busy spreading the word about the unique opportunity and says her athletes are excited and grateful.
“Our programs have the same mission: to help others see there are no limitations when we assist our community in overcoming obstacles,” Heaton said.
“I personally am overwhelmed to see the love and commitment these men and women are showing to our athletes and their families, most of whom they’ve never met. Let’s be ninjas for a day and see how it changes lives.”
