By Emily JenningsApril 26, 2019
WIESBADEN, Germany - Soldiers put their Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Prevention knowledge to the test while running and completing physical fitness challenges during the SHARP Amazing Race April 19 on Clay Kaserne.Teams completed challenges at five stations around Clay Kaserne, plus a final physical challenge at the ending point.Garrison SHARP Program Manager Bill Mottley sent the Soldiers off with a motivational message on being team players in the fight against sexual harassment and sexual assault."It takes us all identifying behaviors that are sexual in nature," he told them at the start of the run. "It takes us all identifying behaviors that make others uncomfortable in our workplace. It takes us all to have a culture change and say something. So today it's going to take every member of your team to win this race, just like our race against sexual harassment and sexual assault."Army Substance Abuse Prevention hosted a station where participants had to weave a pedal-powered go-cart in and out of orange cones while wearing "drunk goggles."U.S. Army Europe hosted a station on the eighth level of the parking garage where teams had to identify myths and facts about consent.Army Community Service's station tested racers on their Family Advocacy Program knowledge.The 2nd Theater Signal Brigade set up a trust activity where one teammate had to lead a blindfolded teammate through an obstacle course.And the 66th Military Intelligence Brigade tested teams' SHARP knowledge before challenging them to a bean bag toss.For more information on SHARP and resources available at U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden, call (0611) 143-548-9222 or visit home.army.mil/wiesbaden and click the SHARP button at the bottom of the page.
