Individual racers and teams competed yesterday in the 2015 Walter Levy Challenge at Norwich University during Homecoming weekend. Organized by the Norwich University Marine Corps student affinity club, the Semper Fidelis Society, the 10K endurance race featured a Marine Corps-style obstacle course. Entry fees will be given to the Semper Fi Fund and the America’s Fund, national charities that support severely injured service members and their families.
Established in 2009, the Levy Challenge is named in honor of Norwich alum and fallen Vietnam War veteran Walter N. Levy. Levy attended Norwich University in 1960 and served as a Marine Corps Second Lieutenant Infantry Officer. He was killed in action on September 18th, 1965 in Quang Nam Province, South Vietnam.
