BOSTON, MA — BFit’s 2nd Annual First Responder Challenge will take place on Sunday, January 28, 2018, from 9am to 1pm, at TD Garden. This one-of-akind event invites local first responders and fitness enthusiasts from across New England to participate in a course throughout the Garden. It also offers families and friends a day filled with activities and fun, including a kid’s obstacle course, touch-a-truck, Bruins alumni, and Bruins mascot Blades.
The event, sponsored by National Grid, takes place to raise awareness around health and wellness and to support The 100 Club of Massachusetts, a charity that supports the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters who are killed in the line of duty.
Both the Wilmington Police Department and Wilmington Fire Department are once again participating in the Challenge and raising funds for the 100 Club. Donate to the Police Department’s efforts HERE and to the Fire Department’s efforts HERE.
Last year, the Wilmington Fire Department was recognized as the highest fundraising Fire/EMS team, collecting more than $12,900. The Fire Department received the BFit Cup in a ceremony at the Public Safety Building in March and was able to facilitate the donation of a full set of street hockey equipment to the Woburn Street School.
