This morning, all of us at Townsquare Media were invited to attend the check presentation ceremony for Guns and Hoses 2013 hosted by 911 Gives Hope. Every year, after the big firefighters vs police officers boxing match, the proceeds are divided with 50% going to fund a group home for those living with prader willi and the other 50% going to local children’s charities.

Watch the video below for a rundown of the checks and a ring presentation to those who have competed in all five matches.
