The Metro SWAT Officers Association (MSOA) and Gillette Stadium are excited to announce their 2014 Fitness Challenge to raise money to provide for children in need. Please get your team ready and help us reach our ambitious fundraising goals.

This year the MSOA and Gillette Stadium will once again be hosting this overnight fitness challenge at Gillette Stadium, starting at 10:00p.m. on Saturday July 19th and finishing at 10:00a.m. on Sunday 20th. This year's event will not be restricted to first responders, but it will be limited to 100 teams, each team consisting of between 10 and 15 participants. Each team will be required to raise a minimum of $10,000 in order to take part in the challenge. MSOA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
