The Competition

You are invited to join Orange County Fire Rescue as we host our 9th annual 343 Hero Challenge. This event is a competition and tribute, honoring the 343 Firefighters and first responders that gave their lives on September 11, 2001. 

Grab a partner and compete alongside some of the toughest occupational athletes in Florida! This is a one-of-a-kind fitness competition; combining functional fitness movements and obstacles only found on a real fireground. This competition is designed to simulate what the 343 Fallen firefighters may have experienced on that tragic day. 

Join over two hundred of your closest friends, as every penny raised goes towards charities that benefit Firefighters and the local community.
