4 Your Community: Metro SWAT Fitness Competition At Gillette Stadium

BOSTON (CBS) – On this week’s 4 Your Community, Metro SWAT is planning a charity fitness competition for September at Gillette Stadium.

They hope to have 1,000 competitors tackling an incredible endurance course.

From running stadium steps to carrying a 200 pound dummy on a stretcher to the top of stadium to pulling an armored vehicle with a rope, Metro SWAT hopes the 2014 New England Fitness Challenge will be a day to remember.

During 12 hours of grueling competition, the organizers hope to raise lots of money for Special Olympics, The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and Jack Williams’ Wednesday Child.

The event is actually in the overnight hours (because SWAT teams need to be ready at any time!) of September 27th and 28th at Gillette Stadium.

On Saturday, they hung out at WBZ-TV to demonstrate a few of the fitness challenges.
