RMHC First Responders Holiday Basketball Challenge

December 11 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Sponsored by

Hosted by the Columbus Police Department through the Columbus Police Basketball Bulldogs in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio, teams made up of personnel from the Columbus Police Department, the Columbus Fired Department, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, & the Madison Township Fire Department will be facing off during the first part of the program. Then winning teams from the games played will play for the First Responders Basketball Tournament Trophy in this first-ever ultimate basketball challenge among Central Ohio first responders to help keep families near their kids getting care at Columbus hospitals this holiday season. These teams will be cheered on by families, friends, and their communities in South High School’s gymnasium! Come join the fun! We’ll have special surprise guests, food trucks, live music during intermission before the championship game at the end and more!
