The Competition

You are invited to join Orange County Fire Rescue as we host our 8th annual 343 Hero Challenge. 
This charity event is a competition and tribute, honoring the 343 Firefighters that gave their lives on September 11, 2001.  Participants will compete in a judged athletic competition featuring traditional functional fitness movements, combined with firefighting tasks designed to simulate what the 343 Fallen firefighers may have experienced on that tragic day. Athletes may compete as an open or as part of a two-person team.
Join us as we pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice! Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to support a worthy cause, as well as have a great day with Central Florida’s finest occupational athletes!
