Some of Colorado’s finest firefighters and athletes will go head to head for a great cause. The third annual Southern Colorado Firefighter Olympiad takes place tomorrow at the State Fairgrounds.

It’s all to raise money for our brave firefighters! The goal is to raise enough money to donate a whole firefighter equipment package to the Rye Fire Department. 

This is no easy competition! For the workout 12 teams will compete in an obstacle course consisting of the farmer carry, hose pull and drag, and finally the fireman carry.  

The event kicks off tomorrow at 10 a.m. the Colorado State Fairgrounds. It’s free and open to the public. They just ask for a donation for our firefighters.
