The Orangetheory Fitness studios of Boynton Beach and East Delray Beach will host their annual Police Department “Hero Challenge” on April 20, featuring the heroic officers of the Boynton Beach and Delray Beach Police Departments.

Members of two local police departments will compete head-to-head in one of Orangetheory Fitness’ signature workouts to see which team burns the most overall calories, using the studio’s electronic monitoring equipment.

Orangetheory will then donate one penny per calorie burned to the charity of the winning team’s choice.

Local vendors will also be present, and the event will feature a silent auction including sports memorabilia, spa packages and more, with all proceeds also being donated to the charity of the winner’s choice.
