Last year was a fantastic second year for Bozeman Fire and its members coming in 36th out of 200 teams. We also had two fire fighters place in the top 100 out of 1,500 participants, 2 in the top 400 and 1 in the top 500. that means we all finished in the top 1/3 of the event. We also raised $3,375.00 for the Leukemia Society as we climbed in honor and great support of a Bozeman Firefighters son who has battled leukemia at such a young age of 14. Thanks again for the past support, we hope your with us again this year.
