Recently, Saint Xavier University (SXU) served as a host site to a community-favorite event, Fire Up A Cure, on Saturday, July 22. This event is founded by the Cure It Foundation and during the event, Chicago-area firefighters competed in a series of challenges while raising money to help fight pediatric cancer. Events included a fire truck pull, an obstacle course, inflatable jousting, tug-of-war, and more. Pediatric cancer patients served as honorary coaches for each team.
The day’s events were featured in the Saturday, July 29 issue of the Daily Southtown. The article’s focal point speaks to the mission of the fun-filled day, honoring heroes of all shapes and sizes.
