Join First Responders Children’s Foundation at the 48th Annual FDNY vs. NYPD Football Game at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, June 6 featuring a 20 Year Commemoration of 9/11 Pregame Tribute. Help us have a profound impact on first responder families by supporting and attending this event.
- The family Tailgate Party will include food and refreshments, commemorative first responder vehicles, vintage cars, a rock climbing wall, a rope course, a children’s football clinic, a BBQ smoker and a “9/11 First Responder Commemorative Walk.”
- The 20 Year Commemoration of 9/11 Pregame Tribute will salute first responders lost on 9/11, first responders with 9/11-related illnesses, and the children of lost first responders to whom the Foundation has awarded college scholarships and who embody resilience and hope for the future. There will be pipes & drums, honor guards, and solemn tributes.
- The Football Game will match up NY’s Bravest and NY’s Finest and includes a halftime show.
Sponsorships include watching the game from the Toyota Club’s private viewing area and a unique experience shared with first responder families including the families of fallen first responders. It’s a wonderful and personal way to show gratitude to our uniformed heroes and their families and to honor the 20 year commemoration of 9/11. Proceeds will support college scholarships and grants for first responder families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Proceeds will also support the FDNY and NYPD football teams. Your contribution will have a direct and immediate impact on the children whose families have already sacrificed so much.
