The funds raised will be used in the following ways:

  • Directly support the 2022 Firefighter Challenge Event in GR.
  • Enable the GRFD Fire Prevention Foundation to support local fire safety educational programs provided through public school sessions, free smoke alarm installations, and community events.
  • Promote fire service recruitment opportunities in West Michigan, and across the state, where there is an urgent need for dedicated, hard-working, and community driving individuals.
  • Support the First Responders Institute’s continued efforts to improve and maintain the health and well-being of first responders.
