May 24, 2022
The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department (JFRD) received 60 treadmills courtesy of the franchise owners in Orangetheory Fitness
“Running is one of my favorite past-times for exercise and stress relief,” said Mayor Lenny Curry. “Thanks to George Baccash, his wife Leslie, Rick and Donna Fenchel and Orangetheory Fitness there will be one treadmill for each fire station across Jacksonville.”
This donation of premier fitness equipment is valued at $100,000. The treadmills will be used to help firefighters and emergency medical personnel maintain their mental and physical fitness.
“Firefighting is one of the most hazardous of all professions, demanding extensive training, strength and stamina, bravery, and selfless concern for the safety and well-being of others,” said Chief Keith Powers. “This generous donation from Orangetheory Fitness will provide our brave men and women with a convenient way to unwind and maintain their fitness.”
