Join us on Sunday, December 11, 2022 for the 2nd annual "Ride To The Rescue" benefiting The Firemen's Benevolent Association of Tampa. This event will feature three different ride lengths; 20 mile, 30 mile and 60 mile. The 20 mile and 30 mile rides will safely head through historic Ybor City before heading North towards the USF campus. The 60 mile ride will continue up to Flatwoods Park Trail before returning along the same route back to downtown Tampa. All rides start and finish at the Tampa Firefighter museum. We will have breakfast food before the ride and also offer a lunch for when the riders return. There will be plenty of fun activities for younger family members and nonriders that will feature games and bicycle and pedestrian safety awareness.
ABOUT THE FIREMEN'S BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION OF TAMPA
Established in 1909 the Firemen’s Benevolent Association of the City of Tampa has served the men and women of Tampa Fire Rescue for over a century. Founded as a widow’s and orphan’s fund for the families of fallen firefighter’s the FBA has grown to support the health and welfare of Tampa’s Firefighters and has stood to provide physical, emotional, and financial assistance to its members in times of need.
These brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to the service of their community are, at times, faced with hardships of their own– devastating hardships that impact not only themselves but their families as well. In keeping with the rich traditions of the fire service and its brotherhood, the Firemen’s Benevolent Association was organized to offer assistance to our firefighters during these difficult times.
The FBA is a non-profit Association whose purpose is to support the health and welfare of its firefighters through the provision and management of life, health and accidental injury assistance as well as emotional support and financial bereavement assistance for both active and retired members. The FBA is funded primarily through the collective contributions of its members as well as sponsorship and generous donations from citizens and the business community.
