The public has been invited to put their fitness to the test on an obstacle course at Integra Health and Fitness Club on April 13.
Students of TAFE NSW Orange have worked with the Orange Community Drug Action Team to put on the Commando Course and Fun Day as part of Youth Week 2019.
Aimed at 12-25 year olds, participants will be timed as they climb, run and crawl their way through the assault course.
There's lots of services who provide treatment options but there's not a lot of groups raising awarenessSharna Dean
From 11am on Saturday, there will be inflatables, competitions and giveaways.
CDAT chairperson Sharna Dean said they hoped to spread the message about what what the drug action team does and drum up a bit of support for the group.
Ms Dean said the group's primary focus is on early intervention and prevention.
"There's lots of services who provide treatment options but there's not a lot of groups raising awareness," she said.
Ms Dean said the CDAT aimed to work with the community to keep young people engaged in healthy activities and the more people they could get involved the more effective they'd be able to be.
She said they were lucky to have the five TAFE Community Service Work students onboard to drive the commando course event.
While young people will be given priority on the course, people of all ages are welcome to attend by either booking through Eventbrite or just showing up on the day and signing a waiver to take part in the free event.
The Orange CDAT team is one of 70 government funded drug action groups across NSW.
Each is made up of volunteers who aim to address alcohol and other drug-related issues at a grass roots level in their communities.
Dr Lisa Simone works with the Alcohol and Drug Foundation of NSW/ACT, which manages the teams.
She said the teams develop locally-led responses to alcohol and drug issues because no community is the same as the next.
