Bess Anderson, a Spectrum Center student volunteer, shared this letter on the Spectrum Center's experience at the Challenge Program.
"On Sunday September 22nd, I, along with seven other Michigan students, became a donkey -- or rather, we became a team of donkeys. We brayed and neighed and ran around a field searching for each other among three dozen other new Spectrum Volunteers, all impersonating their own assigned animals. And all for a cause: this was the Spectrum Center's first ever Volunteer Retreat at the UM Challenge Course. And it was awesome.
