The Sarasota Police Department and the Brotherhood of Men mentoring group co-hosted a free community event for children this past Thursday night called The Junior SWAT Challenge. The Junior SWAT Challenge was held at the Robert L. Taylor Complex where the Sarasota Millionaires hold their practices every Tuesday's and Thursday's.
When asked by founder of Brotherhood of Men Dominic Harris, who is also a police officer for the Sarasota Police Dept. if the Millionaires could help out in any way, it was a simple answer.. Yes! The Millionaires organization provided coolers filled with Gatorade for the event as well as the entire team helping and having fun with the children who participated in the challenge. The event featured speakers from both the police department and the mentoring group, as well as a mini obstacle course, free food and music. Those who participated were asked to dress in exercise clothes, and all participants had to have a waiver form signed by a parent or guardian before being able to participate. Millionaire players formed "groups" as if they were SWAT members and participated in the mini obstacle course "It was fun to break down the door, and jump over walls, etc SWAT members have to be in tip top shape and train hard like us football players" said O/L Chris Odom.
