The second annual Hunks and Ladders Combat Challenge, a competition between local firefighters for a spot in the upcoming Hunks and ladders calendar, will take place on Saturday, July 22 beginning at 3:30PM. The Combat Challenge will take place at the Town Square at the Greene Town Center. Local firefighters will compete for the Combat Challenge championship and the top twelve will be part of the 2017-2018 Hunks and Ladders calendar. All proceeds from the sale of the calendar will benefit the Miami Valley Firefighter/EMS Memorial, A Special Wish Foundation – Dayton Chapter and the Pink Ribbon Driven Foundation.
The Combat Challenge tests firefighter’s mental and physical toughness and after the 4 grueling challenges are completed, the panel of judges will determine the top three finishers and select the firefighters who will appear in the calendar. “The calendar is another way for firefighters to give back to the community they proudly serve,” said Jake Preston, executive director of the Hunks and Ladders organization.
