Fire Up A Cure is a unique event where firefighters from over 60 fire departments are invited to team up for an important cause—helping children with cancer worldwide and right here in our community. On this day of camaraderie, compassion and good natured competition, teams of firefighters will compete in a series of challenges to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer and our local Chicago-area children who are battling this horrible illness.
Fire Up A Cure will bring the fire departments together with the community (and even some fighters and survivors of pediatric cancer) for an amazing cause that will include music, food and activities for all ages. Cheered on by family, friends and local residents, firefighters will go head to head in challenges including tug-of-war, inflatable jousting, hot wing eating, obstacle course and a truck pull. The winning team will be awarded a grand prize and, more importantly, will earn bragging rights!
Don’t miss your chance to participate in this important event.
