Law enforcement and first responders are careers that the public depends on to protect them from danger. The ability to perform occupational duties while wearing heavy gear and possibly a breathing apparatus is paramount to public safety, and requires a high level of fitness to achieve.
The organization will identify and support the development and needs of first responders in furtherance of their continued service and protection of the community as well as generate revenue for first responder organizations that are in need of funding.
This program is offered in memory of fallen Berks County Sheriff Kyle Pagerly and was started through partnership between Alecia Pagerly, Kyle’s wife and Chris Kaag, owner of Corps Fitness and a former Marine Corps Sergeant. Corps Fitness is the local fitness facility where Kyle pushed his physical and mental limits regularly before his untimely death. It gives the opportunity for all Berks County 1st responders,Law enforcement, fire, prison and ems to partake in the physical benefits for a low monthly cost of $25 to get in better shape, to ensure they can perform their job and protect their brothers and sisters.
