ROANOKE (WSLS10)  - The Roanoke Rampage took on the Baltimore Warhawks Saturday night and it was all for a good cause.

The Rampage is a football team made up of professional fire, rescue, police and public safety workers.

The team raises money for local charities while playing football in the National Public Safety Football League.

Proceeds from Saturday's game will go to Straight Street, an organization in downtown Roanoke.

The team said it hopes they can help keep young people off the streets.

"With all the negativity in today's world, to give them a positive outlook, a positive outlook on the future and help guide them to a good outlook on life,"  Tony Rickman, Board of Directors for Roanoke Rampage said.
