It's a hard time for everyone. Whether you're an "essential employee" and working like crazy or you're working from home driving yourself crazy, take some time and take on the challenge. The Colonie Police Department has dared you!

The best thing we can do right now during this pandemic is to stay as active and positive as possible. That's why the Colonie Police Department has decided to dare you through Facebook videos. According to their page, "Each week will feature a new DARE in hopes to spread positivity in our community. Stay strong, healthy and motivated in this tough time!" If you do it, tag them with the hashtag "CPDDaresYou."

This is also a great way to get to know some local law enforcement who are out there continually doing their job and putting their lives on the line in the midst of the pandemic.

The first #CPDDaresYou is a pyramid workout that's good for all members of the family. It involves 20 jumping jacks, 15 frog jumps, 10 push-ups, 5 walking lunges, and then you just go backward to 10 push-ups, etc. Keep an eye on their Facebook page each week for a new dare to keep your mind and body active!
