The Story

EVENT DATE: Jul 22, 2017

2017 FUAC Emcee: Fox 32 Chicago's anchor and reporter Natalie Bomke!
 

Every year teams of firefighters from across Illinois and Boston compete head-to-head in a series of challenges all in the name of pediatric cancer and local children and families affected by this horrible illness. Firefighters sign up in teams of six and each team is assigned a pediatric cancer patient as their honorary coach. Challenges include tug-of-war, inflatable jousting, fire truck pull, obstacle course and, NEW for 2017, a dodgeball tournament!
 

Fire Up A Cure also features fun activities for the whole family. This year's activities include face painting, Chicago sports team mascots, STAR WARS Midwest Garrison Group, music, cornhole, inflatable slides & bouncy house, arts & crafts, raffles, split the pot, reptile show, lemonade stand, bake sale and more.
 

Fire Up A Cure is a means to generate funds specifically to allow children to participate in fire cadet schools and cadet programs; providing another opportunity for children fighting cancer and survivors to participate in physical and social activities.
