McDevitt Tops in Teplitzky Challenge Again, Demolishing His Previous Record
ATLANTIC CITY — The second annual Big Teplitzky Challenge recently took place at The Chelsea in Atlantic City. The Atlantic City Police Department and the A.C. Fire Department raised a total of $5,000 to benefit each of their causes — the police for officer Jack Slota, who was injured while on his way to work, and the firefighters for Mary Jane Mendoza, a young family member of a firefighter who is suffering from Wilms disease.
Las year’s inaugural champion, firefighter Jim McDevitt, successfully defended his Big Teplitsky title, smashing his personal record last year by finishing the Big Teplitsky Breakfast in just 16 minutes.
Last year he won the challenge with a pedestrian time of 27 minutes.
