The first annual Fireball Charity Basketball Challenge successfully raised money for the Great Lakes Burn Camp. This fun event brought the community together to watch our local heroes play 3 on 3 basketball tournaments in a bracket-style event. The 2017 challenge took place at Byron Center West Middle School and featured 21 firefighters and first responders from Byron Township Fire Department, Dorr Township Fire Department and East Grand Rapids Fire Department.
BCF Wealth Strategies, one of the events biggest sponsors, supplied pizza and pop from the local pizza shop for spectators and players to enjoy, free of charge! The BC Wellness Foundation set up many entertaining games and face painting in the hallway for kids to enjoy during the event.
Plans for the 2018 Fireball Charity Challenge are in the works and the date will be announced soon!
