MANCHESTER - Barnegat Township sent two teams to participate recently in the First Responders Fitness Challenge held at Harry Wright Lake in Whiting.
The team competition, organized and hosted by the Manchester Police Department, involves 13 grueling exercise stations spread over a nearly file mile course and culminates in a 200 yard swim.
The challenge is extremely demanding and can only be completed by officers in exceptional condition.
Proceeds from the event go to support Ava’s Voice, a foundation supporting individuals and families with Usher Syndrome, and the nonprofit Manchester Township Police Foundation Fund Inc.
