If there’s one thing that our local firefighters enjoy, it’s some friendly rivalry to benefit a good cause and you can bet that there will be some rivalry as Binghamton area firefighters are preparing to face off against each other once again in the Battle of the Bravest which will happen on Sunday, March 25th as Broome County Firefighters will take on Binghamton Firefighters.

Battle of the Bravest started as a small game of ice hockey on a little pond a couple years ago and since, has grown into something much bigger thanks to our community who've given Battle of the Bravest their full support and have stood tall behind those who protect us in their mission to raise money for a good cause.

While there's some friendly rivalry among those participating in Battle of the Bravest, the goal is the same for each player and that's to raise money for the Retired Professional Fire Fighters Cancer Fund. At Battle of the Bravest, 100% of donations directly help with ‘finding a definitive cure for cancers closely associated with, but not limited to firefighters.’

So, if you and your family are looking for something to do on Sunday, March 24th and you'd like to do support the men and women who've bravely protected our community but now need help themselves, a monetary donation of your choice will get you in the doors at the Ice House Sports Complex (you may know it by its former name, Chenango Ice Rink) on River Road in Chenango Bridge for the Battle of the Bravest.

The fun will kick off at 2:45 p.m. with raffles, auctions, and a 50/50. You can also enjoy food and drink at the Fire and Ice Bar. Puck drop is at 3:30 p.m.
