Help Bring The Firefighter Challenge to Boston, MA

Every Firefighter has their reasons for participating in The Firefighter Challenge. For some, it's simply to stay in shape, some run to remember those whom have fallen, but for most, it's a personal fight to combat mental and physical struggles that impact us daily.

We invite you to help us bring The Firefighter Challenge back to New England in 2023. This will be the first time the Firefighter Challenge has been held in the greater Boston area in decades. Your tax-deductible contributions will help bring The Firefighter Challenge to the greater Boston area and open the door to bringing it back in future years. Our event location is booked at Florian Hall, 55 Hallet Street, Boston, MA 02122, and the dates are June 8-9-10, 2023. We can expect to host well over 100+ firefighters in this Firefighter Challenge from not only the greater Boston area but from all over the USA, Canada, and abroad. But we can not make this happen without reaching our fundraising goal first.

Each dollar donated will go directly to the First Responder Institute and will be allocated to support The Firefighter Challenge. We hope to raise as much as possible to meet our fundraising goal of $37,500.00.

The mission of The Firefighter Challenge is to promote, showcase, and publicly celebrate the selfless spirit and extraordinary fitness levels of America’s elite firefighters in an exciting and entertaining sports competition – all while simulating the arduous and essential skills of firefighting – e.g., climbing a five-story tower in full PPE gear, fire hose hoist, forcible entry, hose drag, and "victim rescue" drag. – as first responders compete against each other, and the clock to be the “Best of the Best!”

We have a lot of stories/floors to climb to reach our fundraising goal, if it's $5.,$50, $500., or more, all contributions add up! As a tribute to those who donate over $100.00, your names will be added to our wall of champions and will be displayed at this event as our way to say thank you.
