Here is another incredible opportunity to join in on more FIT Fun. I am thrilled to report that the Michigan Battle of the Badges has been rescheduled to August 22-24th, 2014. Just in case you forgot, in addition to all of the other cool fitness and wellness stuff I do, I am also the resident Fitness and Wellness Specialist on the Board of Directors of this amazing, non profit organization called, First Responders for Fitness. (FR4F) www.FR4F.org
We believe that all First Responders and their families should embrace and find balance, with 4 strategic areas of fitness and wellness: physical, psychological, spiritual, and nutritional. With this as the cornerstone, we believe all First Responders can in turn better serve our communities.
We are planning an amazing event- the first ever of its kind- called, ” The 2014, Michigan Battle of the Badges” to be held on Bell Isle this summer, August 22 – 24th, 2014. Police officers, Firefighters, EMS, and Lifeguards are all First Responders who must be *FIT and Ready* at all times to protect and serve our communities. This weekend long event will be packed full of games, challenges, and friendly competition, some of which include:
- Toughest First Responder Challenge, Medic Challenge, Police Vs. Fire Tug-0f-war, 5k/10k Charity Run/Walk, Vehicle Extrication Challenge, 3 on 3 basketball, Police, Vs. Fire- Flag Football, Water rescue Challenge, and more. In addition to all of the FIT challenges, there will be family and community fun, entertainment, and more.
“The Rock” as Bell Isle is affectionately called by Detroit folk, was my stomping ground as a youngster while growing up in Detroit. I spent many a day there and I am proud to bring it back home, and contribute to my city and community. If you are interested in training for any of these events, be sure to visit our brand new training ground in Detroit called Detroit Tough. It is located in Corktown at 1244 Beech St. www.detroittough.com
