Challenge accepted: Scott McKee wins physical fitness challenge

Apr. 7, 2013

Who knew being in shape could pay off?


The hard work has paid off for all those participating in the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge, but it paid off a little extra for three participants.

Scott McKee, city clerk, Mario Pozo and Leslie McKee took first, second and third place, respectively, April 6, at the city-sponsored Mayor's Fitness Challenge finale.

Participants competed in a bridge run, step-up or jump-up, burpee and plank holds.

Prize money for the top three finishers was $500 for first, $250 for second and $100 along with a one-year YMCA membership for third.

The fitness challenge will officially wrap up April 27, with an awards ceremony at Rockefeller Gardens.
