2018 Oshawa FireFit volunteers needed!

The Scott FireFit GTA Regional Championship is returning to Oshawa, August 24 to 26,
2018.

The Scott FireFit GTA Regional Championship event has been so successful since
selecting Oshawa to host in 2016,2017, 2018 that Oshawa has  since been selected to
host the 2019 Scott FireFit National Championship. None of this success would be
possible without the continued support of our Volunteers.

Here is a snapshot of some of the key milestones from the 2016 and 2017 events that
we hosted: 

• Over 10,000 guests attended in 2016 and 2017.

• 2016 and 2017 events sold out prior to event dates with a waiting list.

• Over 700 competitors from 8 provinces participated in the competition.

• Over $25,000 was raised for the Firehouse Subs Foundation.

•  A total of $10,000 was awarded to the City of Oshawa’s Junior Firefighter
Program.

• Great feedback from families, sponsors, competitors , volunteers and community
partners.

• Equipment was donated to Oshawa Fire Services to help in community protection,
prevention and education, along with other fire departments across Durham Region.

•  An Automated External Defibrillator was donated to Peacock Lumber Ltd. in 2016.

The 2018 event is already creating a buzz in our community. Once again,
firefighters, guests and dignitaries from across the Durham Region, Ontario, Canada
and international countries will descend upon Oshawa to experience the first class
hospitality that the Oshawa FireFit event has become known for - but we cannot do it
without your support.  We are requesting your help to once again, showcase your
professionalism and enthusiasm to the hundreds of competitors and thousands of
guests that will be in attendance and to make this year's event even bigger and
better than before.

We will again require Volunteers for the following days:

Thursday August 23 - Morning - Set up 

Friday August 24 - Evening ( we are also hoping to have a team of volunteers compete
in the charity relay. details to follow.)

Saturday August 25 - All Day - Individual Races

Sunday August 26 - All Day - Relays, Tandems, Tear down 

We appreciate your time and consideration towards supporting our event again in
2018. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
Should you wish to be removed from further correspondence please let me know.
