Thank you for being a part of Guns & Hoses! It takes a village to not only make Guns & Hoses happen, but also make it the huge success it is year after year!

You Help Make It Happen.

Every year this epic event gets bigger and better. This year we broke records with sponsorships, vendors, volunteers, and attendance, and you were a part of that. Together, we raised more than $100,000 to support first responder programs and public safety initiatives. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Our Guns & Hoses Boxing Challenge is the second largest of its kind in the nation. In fact, last year we were honored to be awarded Omaha’s “Best Event” by Metro Magazine.

Every year, thousands of us gather together for this amazing experience and to support first responders – the very first people to arrive at the scene of an emergency and those we turn to for help in moments of crisis. The fighters and first responders that participate in Guns & Hoses are pillars of our community, and we thank each and every one of you for having their backs and joining forces with us for this fun and exciting fundraiser.
