This is your moment, your team’s moment, to join America’s heroes in one exciting community event designed to raise funds for your favorite charity and celebrate the work of your community responders.

It’s easy to participate! Just recruit four (4) of your friends, family, or coworkers to join you for a fun, friendly relay competition going head-to-head with other local teams on the most recognized firefighter training course in the world. The Charity Relay Challenge is more than just a competition and fundraiser, it brings together the community to celebrate the work of local First Responders and to honor the many nonprofits, volunteers, frontline workers, emergency personnel, and other professions and organizations that work tirelessly to strengthen the fabric of their community. We call them change agents as they too are a vital part of our extended responder community.

Come on, take the Challenge, and be amazed at what you can do!

Welcome to the Arena of the Brave

Your team will be competing on the course where champions are born, where world records are made, and where America’s heroes train to be at their very best. For the next five minutes you’ll be firefighters in training on a modified version of the globally recognized Firefighter Challenge course. It’s time to just let loose and have the time of your life as each member of your team completes just one of five (5) of the evolutions. Deep breath, you got this!

Evolution 1: High-Rise Pack Carry

Let the Challenge begin. The siren sounds and the first member of the team begins their climb up our 41 feet high, five (5) story tower of stairs (63 steps) carrying a 25lb hose pack.

Evolution 2: The Hose Hoist

Once at the top of the tower, you’ll tag team member 2 who will then hand-over-hand hoist a 25lb donut roll of hose from the ground up to the top of the tower. It’s mind over matter, working through the burn until the roll of hose clears the top railing and is placed into the container on the top platform floor. Now, team member 1 will descend back down the tower carrying the 25lb high-rise pack. You got this!

Evolution 3: The Force Machine

Presented by Keiser®, the 3rd team member will simulate a chopping motion using a 9.6lb dead blow hammer to force the 160lb Keiser® Force Machine’s steel beam a horizontal distance of 5 feet. Deep breath, your team is half-way to the finish line. Now go tag the next team member!

Evolution 4: The Hose Advance

The 4th team member will negotiate the 140-foot (42.6m) slalom course by rolling a section of hose in and out of the delineators without missing or knocking any over. They will then pick up the nozzle end of the 1 inch (4.45cm) charged hose line and drag it 75 feet. Once the nozzle penetrates the swinging doors, they will open the nozzle aiming the stream to hit the target. Now drop that nozzle and go tag the next team member!

Evolution 5: Victim Rescue

Presented by LION, the 5th team member will drag the 110Ib SMARTDUMMY™ RESCUE MANIKIN backwards a distance of 106 feet. The cheering crowd is rooting you on, and the time officially stops when you and the Rescue Manikin completely cross the finish line. Celebration time! There are no losers here. You’re a winner because you pushed yourself and finished strong! Congratulations to your team!
