Members of the Rockland Police Department were part of a team that participated in a 26-hour workout marathon to raise money to assist victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.  Members included Chief John Llewellyn, Officer Sue Llewellyn, and Officer Rick Novio.

Military and first responders, including police officers, firefighters, nurses and paramedics raised a minimum of $2,600 per team to enter the event.

Approximately 40 teams, consisting of 10 to 12 people, participated in an endurance event with 26 separate workout stations in and around Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place over a 26-hour period beginning at 2:50 p.m., on Saturday, June 22nd.

sze1Each challenge station was designed to reflect the jobs and tasks of all the first responders represented at the workout marathon. Each team completed a set amount of repetitions per exercise station. Every team member was required to work out during the first six hours of the event.  After completing the first six-hour portion of the event, a minimum of six competitors from each team continued to work out. In the 26th and final hour, all teams were encouraged to finish together – one team, one mission.
