Fans raise money for CO Pro Fire Fighters Foundation
It looks the yellow t-shirts around Dick's Sporting Goods Park during Saturday's match caught the eye of quite a bit of fans. Wearing yellow shirts labeled "Support the Fire Fighters," the Rapids collected over $5000 from fans during the Rapids vs Portland game to benefit the fire fighters of Colorado.
Kroenke Sports Charities announced today that the organization will match the generosity to donate $10,000 to the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation (WEBSITE).
