Yup, it’s that time of year again!!
The event was started by the Jersey City Fire Department after losing one of their own and severely injuring another member when they were called to reposition a ladder and due to the icy conditions, lost their footing and the ladder came in contact with a high power line.
For the past 25 years firefighters throughout the state of NJ have been supporting the ski race despite numerous years of rain, storms and lack of snow. Through all of this, we have been able to raise over a quarter of a million dollars for St Barnabas Burn Center.
The organization’s support of Saint Barnabas Burn Center helps the Burn Center continue to provide fire and burn prevention programs to schools, the community and Fire Departments throughout the state along with burn care to patients and support programs for burn victims and their families. These programs and services are a top priority among both professional and volunteer firefighters throughout the state.
We’ll make sure to take a lot of photos and video and pass them along next week and in the meantime, here’s some fun from the previous years….
