News: Tug of War Challenge Winner!

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) won against their Chesapeake Bay Cabinet colleagues and competitors at the Tug-of-War Challenge on Thursday, November 3. The department went undefeated (as DNR says: “once again”), beating both the Maryland Department of Agriculture and the Department of Planning in the finale.

Together they raised more than $1,000 for The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s House at Johns Hopkins. AMAZING!! We are beyond grateful for this friendly and spirited competition in the name of raising critical money for important, worthy causes. Check out this fantastic group of people below, and all the photos here.
