If there’s one thing military heroes know best, it’s hell—from intensive training to yearlong deployments, and let’s not forget physical training.
The 2nd Annual Hell Day for Heroes, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 29, invites all fitness levels to work out their muscles at the War Memorial in Danbury. The event is organized by law enforcement and the military.
All proceeds go to Help Our Military Heroes, an organization dedicated to severely wounded service members, which even provides new handicap vans for transportation.
Det. Paul Carroccio of the Danbury Police department, and one of the few people who came up with the idea for this fundraiser, said, “It’s a difficult but doable workout for people to subject themselves to while raising money for HOMH.”
“It was the least they could do for veterans who have given so much!” says Carroccio.
The event requires teams of four, responsible for 500 push-ups, 500 sit-ups, 500 airsquats and 500 burpees.
“We’re hoping to continue to expand it going forward as it is for a tremendous cause!” Carroccio added.
So big or small, raise hell!
