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).

Per the Foundation, donations will go directly to the families or fire fighters who have fallen, were injured, or who have suffered tragedy.
