RIDE TO THE RESCUE

Join us on Sunday, December 3, 2023 for the 4th annual "Ride To The Rescue" benefiting The Firemen's Benevolent Association of Tampa. This event will feature three different ride lengths; 12 mile, 30 mile, and 60 mile. The 12 mile ride will safely head from the museum and twice around Davis island then back. The 30 mile ride to Davis Island and then on 40th Street to USF and turn. The 60 mile ride will do the same as the 30 Mile but will continue to Station 22 and back. 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.
