Challenge Returns To The Mount November 1, 2019Mount Saint Mary’s University, located in Emmitsburg, Maryland, has become the host for the annual Maryland Endurance Challenge set for Saturday, May 30th, 2020. The date will mark the fourth year in a row that “The Mount” will host the event. Tucked in the base of Catoctin Mountain and just south of the Maryland-Pennsylvania border, the university is a private, liberal arts Catholic university offering more than 70 majors, minors, concentration and special programs for traditional undergraduate students, and 20 adult undergraduate and graduate programs. The Maryland Endurance Challenge is produced by SHIP of Frederick County, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency that provides critical services and essential support to the hundreds of Frederick County youth experiencing homelessness each year. The Challenge is an annual fundraiser for SHIP.
