Local firefighters and police officers are just hours away from taking the football field to battle it out in the name of charity.
You've probably heard of the Roanoke Rampage.
They're the local team in the National Public Safety Football League.
Every time they hit the field in front of a crowd they're collecting money for charity.
All the money raised at the gate goes to two different cancer charities and the wounded warrior project.
"Cancer has been so devastating to the fire service. We know so many firefighters that have cancer, that has battled cancer, that has lost their battle to cancer, police officers as well, and I think every fan that comes to our game knows somebody that's dealing with a cancer related illness," said Captain Todd Stone, President of Roanoke Rampage.
Over the past four years the team has donated nearly $30,000.
The season opener is Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. at William Fleming High School.
