Local Firefighters Fight Pediatric Cancer at 6th Annual Fire Up A Cure
Jun 21, 2017 4:34 PM -
Star Wars, firefighters and reptiles…oh my! What do all three of these have in common? They will all get fired up at The Cure It Foundation's 6th Annual Fire Up A Cure event on Saturday, July 22. This one-of-a-kind event brings together nearly 20 teams of firefighters from across Illinois competing in a series of challenges such as a fire truck pull, inflatable jousting, tug-of-war, dodgeball tournament, and more; all to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer clinical research trials. Courageous pediatric cancer patients and survivors will serve as honorary coaches to the local firefighters. Competitors, coaches and community members will come together to join in support and celebration for champions of all sizes! The event is open to the public and scheduled from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Saint Xavier University's (SXU) Chicago campus, 3700 W. 103rd Street. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time by visiting The Cure It Foundation's website at https://www.fireupacure.com/ or at the door on July 22!
