GUNS & HOSES BOXING CHALLENGE
EVENT MARKETING & PRODUCTION
“Guns & Hoses” is the common name given to events nationwide that feature police officers and firefighters competing in various sports. There is a natural, friendly competitive nature between the first responders, and – regardless of location – these are always fun, well-promoted and well-attended events.
In Omaha, the Guns & Hoses Boxing Challenge is the leading police vs. fire competition and has drawn upwards of 4,000 spectators annually since 2017. In fact, the event was awarded “Best Event” by Metro Magazine in 2018!
Not only do Omaha’s firefighters and police officers duke it out in the boxing ring, they also “fight” to raise money for a good cause. For the past several years, all proceeds have been donated back to the First Responders Foundation – a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization – to help solve community public safety issues and support first responders.
Since 2017, Say Hey There has been the marketing firm behind the event, helping to develop creative and rally community. Scroll through this page to check out all the ways we’ve helped the event grow over the years!
