Seven participants braved the weather in Marquette Park in Chicago's South Side to complete the MALTZ Challenge. The MALTZ is hosted by the US DEA in rememberance for M/SGT Maltz of the USAF who was killed in an in-theater helicopter crash in 2003.
Individual times ranged from 38 to 64 minutes...not too shabby when the 2 inches of snow on the ground, the heavy sleet, and the 22-degree windchill are factored into the event!!!
The event is annually held on the same weekend, the anniversary of Maltz's death. Get prepared for next year's MALTZ.
