In today's world of speed, technology, news overload, social media, etc., it is not surprising that national rates of stress and anxiety are on the rise.

One recent effort has been the GCDS Outdoor Adventure Team! This short video will give you a small window into their winter season—they were clearly UNDEFEATED!
