Firefighters are close to my heart for two reasons. I had a house fire my senior year of high school. That night was horrible and changed my life forever. I'll never forget the firefighter who sat with me and kept me calm in such a vulnerable time for me.
Then, there's my heroes - my big sister and brother-in-law are retired firefighters. They literally volunteered to walk into burning buildings to save people. They deserve more than a fundraiser, but I know they'd rather give forward to a group like the Firefighter 5 Foundation than any award or accolade.
Our firefighters are amazing people. Please donate if you can.
