SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Student Veterans of America challenged Drury students, faculty and staff to pass a military physical fitness test.

The challenge includes two minutes each of timed push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups or flexed-arm hang, plus a two-mile run.

Money from entry fees and donations will benefit the Home at Last program, which assists homeless veterans in Springfield. Home at Last is a new program funded by a Supportive Services for Veteran Families grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

For more information about the physical fitness challenge or SVA, contact SVA president-elect Katelyn Vernon, at (817) 694-4461 or kvernon@drury.edu.
