KDH Defense Systems, Inc. has sponsored the Southeastern Massachusetts METROLEC SWAT team in the upcoming Boston Strong First Responders Workout Marathon later this month, according to the company.
The event will provide financial assistance to victims of the recent Boston Marathon bombing, including MBTA Officer Richard Donohue and the family of slain MIT Officer Sean Collier.
The company has pledged $2,600 to the SWAT team. KDH will also be donating an Active Shooter Response Kit to the team, which they will be raffling during the event. All proceeds from the Workout Marathon will be donated to The One Fund, according to Paul Larkin, KDH's national sales director.
The Workout Marathon will be held at Gillette Stadium at 2:50 p.m. on June 22 and will be led by cross-fit and fitness coaches. The event will conclude at 5 p.m. on June 23. The Workout Marathon is open to military and first responders, including police, fire, EMS and hospital emergency staff. The workout marathon will consist of 26 separate workout stations in and around Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place.
