Thanks to outstanding community support, Sheriff Tom Knight’s 4th Annual Corporate SWAT Challenge raised $25,000 for the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch.
On Saturday, 10 teams from area businesses spent the day at Knight Trail Park in Nokomis competing in five tactical events of skill, endurance and strategy. The Corporate SWAT Challenge was designed so participants would have fun in a challenging but team-building atmosphere while raising money for a great cause.
Sarasota Dental Group took first place for the second year in a row, followed by Constant Motions Protection & Fitness in second, and Honest Air of Venice in third. Other competing teams included the Daiquiri Deck, Mosaic, Suncoast Motorsports, BMW of Sarasota, Macy’s, First Step of Sarasota and SNN Local News.
The event was sponsored by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Macy’s, with additional support from Sarasota Trophy, Publix Supermarkets, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Mi Pueblo, Caragiulos, Nancy’s Bar-B-Q, Owen’s Fish Camp, New Balance, Fleet Feet Sarasota, Molly’s Boutique, Beads and Dangles, Trader Joe’s, Chick-fil-A, Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Jackson & Associates, Flat Branch Associates and Ellijay Associates.
Since its inception in 2010, Sheriff Tom Knight’s Corporate SWAT Challenge has provided $100,000 to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch. For information on their programs visit www.youthranches.org.
