On July 14th, the CFARS Water Rescue Team assisted with the 23rd Great Rubber Ducky Race, to benefit the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY and the Cancer Support Community CNJ on the South Branch of the Raritan River in Clinton.
Ducks left the starting gate after being secured by the Rescuers!! Over one thousand ducks participated for the big day, each of them with a sponsor!
This creative fundraiser benefits the ACS programs of research, education, advocacy and patient/family services in the Northwest NJ Region and the gold standard programs of support, education and hope for cancer patients and their families at the Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey.
The event will be a colorful one, as hundreds of yellow rubber ducks race to the finish line, sponsors cheering them on, hoping that THEIR duck will be a winner. CFARS is proud to be an ongoing participant in this event!
On Saturday August 25, 2012, members of CFARS attended the 2nd Annual Hose Down, a fund raiser for our friends at the Lebanon Borough Fire Company. The event brought teams from CFARS, Lebanon Fire, Country Hills Fire Department, Raritan Township Fire Company, Sea Bright Fire Department and the Citizens Band Radio, who also supplied the days musical entertainment.
Besides catching up with old friends and enjoying a nice day in Lebanon Park, our members participated in the \"Victim Drag\", the Bucket Brigade, King of the Hose Down, and the Tug-of-War. Thank you to 18FIRE for another great event!
