BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — First responders were sweating in the name of charity on Sunday at TD Garden's BFit Challenge.

Hundreds of military members, firefighters, FBI agents, and first responders walked and ran to raise nearly $600,000 for first responders and military charities at the 7th annual BFit Challenge.

Former Boston Bruins goalie, Andrew Raycroft, was the first runner at the event. After eventgoers made their final steps they were awarded with a black and gold BFit metal.

"You definitely earn that medal at the end but it's not like no one can do it, it's doable," Daryl Mackiewicz, with Lakeville Police, told WBZ's Suzanne Sausville.

Mackiewicz has been taking part in the BFit Challenge for the past four years.

Quincy Police Lieutenant Mark Kennedy said this was his first time doing the challenge and was enjoying using the shared space at TD Garden.

"It's pretty cool they let us use [the Bruins] locker room and it's a cool experience," Lieutenant Kennedy said.

The money raised at Sunday's event will go towards the New England Firefighter Cancer Fund, the 100 Club of Massachusetts, Kappa Sigma Military Heroes, Massachusetts Ambulance Foundation, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, 22 Mohawks Veteran Suicide Awareness, and Live Boston 617.
