Guns and Hoses Hockey

It’s local Police Vs. Fire in the annual Guns and Hoses Hockey Game at the Roanoke Civic Center! This Saturday, January 18th at 6:00 PM we will drop the puck on our 11th game. Guns and Hoses is an annual charity ice hockey tournament played in Roanoke, Virginia, to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the official charity of the International Association of Firefighters. Last year alone, the I.A.F.F. raised more than $25 million for the MDA through events such as this.

Each year, local Roanoke-area firefighters (the “Hoses”) take on a team of local Roanoke-area police officers and law enforcement personnel (the “Guns”). During the last 10 years, Roanoke’s Guns and Hoses has raised more than $133,000 for the MDA, and more than 33,000 people have attended the games. Please come out and support a great cause.
