First responders in the Roanoke Valley battle it out on the gridiron for charity

Police and firefighters suited up in football gear to help raise money for local charities

SALEM, Va. – Police and firefighters suited up in football gear to help raise money for local charities in Roanoke on Saturday.

The Roanoke Rampage, which is made up of first responders in the Roanoke Valley, battled it out on the gridiron against the Chicago Blaze.

The Chicago Blaze is made up of firefighters from the Windy City.

Both teams are a part of the National Public Safety Football League.

Each team played for a local charity and Roanoke Rampage is playing for the West End Center.

“This past week we had a few players go there and read a few books to them and just try to promote a positive image to them, there are people out there that are about them and want to support them, care about their futures,” Greg St. Clair with Roanoke Rampage said.
