David Clark wants to create a platform so the public can thank firefighters for their service, along with their families who support and sustain them.
Clark creates “Firefighter Appreciation Week” with the support of United States Senators Mark Udall, Mike Bennett and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.
…tribute events are produced around the state of Colorado to honor firefighters while raising funds to meet their material needs.
Fight Fire With Running – Two mile race Chaired by Olympic Champion Frank Shorter
Fight Fire With Coffee – Starbucks promotion
Fight Fire With Bikes – Event held with Denver Bike Night
Fight Fire With Fish – Seafood restaurant promotions
Fight Fire With Beer Festival – Featuring dozens of premium beers
Firefighter Appreciation Week culminates with the “Fight Fire With Beer Festival.” In 2014 this premium benefit beer festival was staged in the heart of downtown Denver. Local musical acts including the Colorado Symphony performed, and dozens of premium breweries participated in the day long music and beer festival in Sculpture Park.
Governor John Hickenlooper presents the prestigious “Fight Fire With Beer – Governor’s Cup” to the winning breweries. As part of the honor, winning breweries are allowed to sell their award winning brew all year long with a portion of the proceeds supporting firefighters.
This statewide tribute is a public platform that provides all Coloradans with the chance to annually say “thank you” to those who work to keep them safe 365 days a year.
“On behalf of the people of Colorado, we want to thank the brave firefighters who put themselves in harms way. We are pleased and proud to support Firefighter Appreciation Week and hope every Coloradan honors those who put their lives on the line to protect us.” – Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper
