The SLPD SWAT Fitness Challenge is an endurance race designed to promote teamwork and sportsmanship. Starting in 2014 the Department selected the George Mark Children's House as their charity. $25,000 was successfully raised from that year's fundraising. In the year 2015, they have exceeded their goal of $25,000 and raised $32,000. The George Mark Children's House provides hospice type care to children from throughout our region.
