Dedicate Your Workout To FDNY Member Matt McDevitt with #McDevittStrong Challenge

Matt McDevitt

We wanted to share an inspiring story with all of our followers and challenge them to dedicate a workout to a member of the FDNY, Matt McDevitt. The husband and father of two was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and all of his treatments are limiting his ability to hit the gym. A few weeks ago, he asked his wife, Jackie, to go out and run for him, because if he could, he would. This notion has impacted so many across the country, dedicating their workouts and breaking a sweat in his honor.

Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) even sent him a video of encouragement.

Spread the word by using #McDevittStrong and tag three people to join you in this challenge. In addition to dedicating your work out, if you want to donate, there is a GoFundMe page set up for Matt and his family.
