HRDC’s BOAR race committee is proud to include Montana State University Honors students among their community partners! During the planning process, the Committee needed help designing obstacles. MSU Professor Brian Brush answered the call, “I just couldn't resist the gravity of the opportunity. It seemed like a perfect fit for me to get involved given my position as
Community Design Center Director and my life as an athlete with a lot of history in the Bozeman sporting world. So I'm very happy I finally made the leap!”
The Committee has had the privilege of attending presentations for two cohorts of Honors Arts and Architecture students, most recently on April 28. In addition to conceptualizing equitable obstacles, building models, and estimating materials, students were asked to explain how their obstacles relate to youth experiencing homelessness. The BOAR Build Committee, with guidance from Structural Engineer, Ty Monks, have built two student-designed obstacles, including the “The BOAR Strong Wall” and “Boxes” with other builds planned every two weeks through mid-August.
