LETHBRIDGE, AB – Safe to say Lethbridge Police Cst. Terry Fieguth impressed even himself this weekend, completing nearly 4,100 pull ups, all for mental health awareness.

He started at 10:00 am on Saturday, pushing through 100 pull ups every 10 minutes, before calling it quits at 2:00 am on Sunday. When it was all said and done, he completed 4,080 total.

Cst. Fieguth’s ultimate goal was to raise money for first responder mental health support through the Legacy Place Society. He crushed that goal, as well collecting more than $8,000

Fieguth says he’s thankful for the generosity from friends, family, co-workers and even complete strangers, adding that there will definitely be more fundraising challenges for him in the future.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
