Bucs Announce Fitness Challenge Details

Posted Oct 29, 2013

Sponsored by Florida Hospital, the second annual Buccaneers Fitness Challenge aims to find the team's fittest fans and to promote physical activity for all

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Tuesday details surrounding the team’s second annual Buccaneers Fitness Challenge, presented by Florida Hospital, which will take place prior to the November 17 game versus the Atlanta Falcons.

“We look forward to working with our new partners at Florida Hospital to promote physical fitness through this unique, elimination-style competition,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford.

The Buccaneers Fitness Challenge is designed for all levels of fitness and follows a callisthenic-based, elimination-style format to determine those who will ultimately be crowned the team’s fittest fans. Prizes will be awarded to both a male and female winner, as well as to the gym or group with the greatest number of contestants and spectators. Following the competition, participants and spectators will be able to attend the division-rivalry game between Tampa Bay and Atlanta, as the registration fee includes game admission.

Florida Hospital, which this season joined with the Buccaneers in an innovative community health partnership, will sponsor the event, providing a variety of stations to treat and enlighten Fitness Challenge participants and spectators alike, including areas focusing on first aid, sports therapy and heating and cooling.

“It is our priority to inspire and help the residents of the Tampa Bay area live longer, healthier lives,” said Mike Schultz, president and CEO of Florida Hospital’s Tampa Bay Network. “We are extremely excited to be the presenting sponsor of the second annual Buccaneers Fitness Challenge and wish all the competitors best of luck.”

The entry fee for contestants is $65, which includes competition entry, competition t-shirt, and a ticket to the afternoon’s game, along with a $10 stadium food and beverage voucher. The spectator fee is $55, which includes access to the competition and a game ticket. The challenge itself will take place in Lot 14 at Raymond James Stadium from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. on November 17, with check-in beginning at 7:00 a.m.

Fans interested in registering as either competitors or spectators should visit www.buccaneers.com/fitness to sign up, or call 813-998-3827. Competitors must be 18 years or older to participate in the event, spectators may be any age.
