The Pleasure Ridge Park Fire District is one of many suburban fire departments who support The Crusade for Children.  PRP Fire District has raised over 8 million dollars over the past 60 years and remains at the forefront as the biggest fundraisers for this charity group.  We have members from all walks of life and at every step of the career ladder.  However, we are unified in our belief that our community, our children and our own professional life will benefit from developing relationships with other local leaders.  You are not just joining a run/walk event, you are now part of a culture, a family who believes in the power of helping others and the fine results that it produces.
