Opening ceremony by the Pipes and Drums Team to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to serve our community.  Union President Robert Glorioso to follow with welcome message from all Fire Fighters.


Our community

Firefighters take great pride in their service to the community.  They spend countless hours off the clock volunteering and giving back as much as possible to our community. It is our hope that with this event, we can return that support.


Your support

Join us as we strive to raise 10K for the Benevolence Foundation.  Funds go towards helping the families who have lost their Fire Fighter in the line of duty as well as to support those in need.
