California firefighters ride cross-country for national observance
Toledo Fire and Rescue to host fellow firefighters along their fundraising journey
The Toledo Fire and Rescue Department will tonight host ten firefighters from southern California trekking across the country to observe the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on America. Their journey, by bicycle, will also raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project and the Leary Firefighter Foundation.
The firefighters will arrive in Toledo on Monday afternoon at the fire administration building. They will be a guest of the Toledo Mud Hens at their Monday evening game, where the firefighters have been invited to take an honor lap around the interior perimeter of 5/3 Field. Frickers Downtown has donated dinner for the group.
They will conclude their stopover in Toledo spending the night at a fire station as guests of the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department. The next stop on their tour will be Kent, Ohio.
Members of the group will be available to the media at the Mud Hens game to discuss their ride and the causes they support.
