All operational costs are covered by sponsors/donors/ambassadors for our organization.  All money raised at this event will go towards 2022 operational costs and our programs listed above.  We have successfully given over $11,000 to families of fallen heroes as well as over $21,000 in impact towards law enforcement & Fire/EMS agency needs in three short years while growing in popularity and turnout at our events each year.
