We’re pleased to announce that the Manchester Township Police Department will host the First Responders Fitness Challenge on Wednesday, September 8, 2021, at Harry Wright Lake, located at 1499 Lake Road, Manchester, NJ, 08759.

Rope ClimbThis event is a grueling course that includes running, swimming and various functional training based exercises. The teams competing will be four person teams consisting of Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters and Active Military. In previous years this event has gathered nearly one hundred competitors from the tri state area to earn the title of “The Fittest Agency.”

This event is benefitting Recalibrate, a Non-Profit Organization which helps to assist veterans with a smooth and successful transition into civilian life and the Non‐Profit Manchester Township Police Foundation.

Agencies may enter multiple teams (may be limited to only two teams per agency). Slots will be filled on a first come first serve basis, and there will be a cut off.

Checks should be made payable to the Manchester Township Police Foundation Fund Inc. Completed registration forms and payments should be returned to Ptl. Conner Yatauro at Manchester Township Police Department, 1 Colonial Dr. Manchester, NJ, 08759. If any members of your agency would like to participate in this competition, please contact Ptl. Yatauro at (732) 657-2009 Ext. 6413 or by email at cyatauro@manchestertwp.com.

In years past, this team-based competition has supported the Ocean of Love and Ava’s Voice charitable organizations. The officers were proud to work together and compete in grueling physical exercises, all for worthy causes.
