The firefighters brought their ‘A’ game and a $1,500 cheque towards the Dreams’ travel fund.

The newly organized team offers an opportunity for the street community, including men and women who are homeless, in transition or at risk, and people with mental health or addiction issues. The Dreams hope to play like teams around the Pacific Northwest.
