Guns & Hoses Boxing Challenge

Guns & Hoses

Friday, April 22, 2022 at Baxter Arena

As you know, we made the decision to cancel Guns & Hoses 2021 in order to keep our first responders and community safe & healthy during the COVID pandemic.

“Guns & Hoses” is the common name given to events nationwide that feature police officers and firefighters competing in various sports. 

In an effort to avoid any confusion, please know that First Responders Foundation is not involved with any Guns & Hoses boxing event this year.

Thank you all for your support. Please stay tuned to our pages as we have several great events on the horizon that we can’t wait to share more about with all of you.


It’s Blue vs. Red, Police vs. Fire!

Our Biggest Annual Fundraiser Is Also the Area’s Most Exciting Sporting Event!

“Guns & Hoses” is the common name given to events nationwide that feature police officers and firefighters competing in various sports. In Omaha, the First Responders Foundation organizes the Guns & Hoses Boxing Challenge — the leading police vs. fire competition that draws upwards of 4,000 spectators annually!

Not only do Omaha’s firefighters and police officers duke it out in the boxing ring, they also “fight” to give back. All proceeds are donated back to our foundation to help fulfill our mission to serve and honor all our first responders and their families, build appreciation and respect for their work, and enhance public safety.

Sponsorship & Advertising Opportunities

Sponsorships allow business owners to expose their brand, products, and services to thousands of people while also supporting a great cause. The event has over 12,000 social media followers across its various platforms who will see sponsor shout-outs on their timelines. Certain sponsorships and advertising opportunities also allow for businesses to have a vendor booth at the event in high-traffic areas; a logo visible throughout the arena and on the jumbotron and big screens; and recognition in the event program.

There are custom sponsorship opportunities available and advertising options starting at just $500. Email with inquiries or to secure your involvement, or click the button below to visit the official event site and learn more!
