ROCKFORD (WREX) – Local firefighters are making a big donation to help burn victims.
This Saturday, the Fire and Iron Motorcycle Club presented a $1,600 check to OSF Saint Anthony’s burn unit.
Everyone in the motorcycle club is either a retired or active member of an area fire department.
“Many of us as firefighters have direct experience and direct contact with victims and their families, so each year we spend money to help with this process along the way,” Fire and Iron Station 53 President Ed Labay said.
This is the fifth year the club has raised money for the burn unit.
