Inverness, Florida - Commander Buddy Grant with the Citrus County Sheriff's Office is challenging his deputies to beat his time of 4:28 on the Sheriffs office PT (Physical Training) course.
As a United Way board member, he says it's something that's been on his mind for a long time. This challenge is a way to give back and make a difference in his community.
Commander Grant ran this morning and for every deputy that beats his time, he and his sponsors will donate $50 to the United Way of Citrus County. Those deputies will also be allowed to skip their next required quarterly run.
Commander Grant estimates that around $5,000 will be raised annually by this challenge.
