Rappel down a mountain lately? Bike across the state? Learn a new ski trick at the lake? If so, Air Force Global Strike Command wants to hear about your amazing outdoor adventures this summer.

Air Force Global Strike Command is partnering with the American300 tour for the "Do Something Amazing Outdoors Challenge."

This challenge will send the winning Airman to California for a behind the scenes look at JHC Hero Racing Team's pre-Baja 1000 training camp as they prepare to run the Baja 1000 off-road race through the deserts of Mexico. The Hero Racing Team features 'Monster" Mike Schultz a competitive driver who designed his own prosthetic in order to continue racing.

Shultz is a dedicated competitor who has been racing motocross since 1997, in 2008 he underwent an above the knee amputation but continued to compete and race in both motocross and snocross. In 2010 he was inducted into the Athletes with Disabilities Hall of Fame.

By linking Airmen with civilians who have attained excellence from different walks of life, the command is reinforcing its goals of establishing a model command with resilient Airmen motivated toward excellence.

The Challenge runs June 20 through Sept. 22. Upload a picture, video or story about yourself doing something amazing in the outdoors to the "Do Something Amazing Outdoors Challenge" Facebook site for a chance to win the trip.

In addition, the first 50 Airmen from each base who post a submission to the Facebook site and log it at their base Outdoor Recreation office will receive a free pair of Crocs once the base logs 50 submissions from 50 different people.

All accepted submissions must be legal, and they must be safe. Show us what you've got, and do something amazing.
