Hundreds Participate in the Gaylord Gauntlet in Wallingford

NBC Universal, Inc.

Hundreds of people are participating in the Gaylord Gauntlet in Wallingford on Saturday.

There is a 5K and an obstacle course. The obstacle course is made up of more than 20 obstacles from walls to scale, mud pits, water slides and more.

It's all for a good cause as the awareness and funds raised today will go towards getting individuals back in good condition with the Gaylord adaptive sports program.

It's more than the obstacle course and an event to raise funds - triumph, strength and perseverance will be on full display as "Featured Adaptive Athlete" for the Gauntlet this year is Greg Whitehouse.

The 51-year-old had COVID-19 in November then two weeks later, developed GBS, which is a syndrome that completely paralyzed him. After months of inpatient and now outpatient therapy, he will be tackling the Gaylord Gauntlet today.

Five hundred people are participating in the event.
