A mud volleyball tournament hosted by Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) Community Outreach last summer raised $2,500 for the Disabled Athletes Sports Association, a St. Peters-based nonprofit that promotes adaptive sports and activities to those with physical, visual, and hearing disabilities.
Capt. David Maupin, chairman of the CCFR Community Outreach Committee, presented DASA with a check at the CCFR Board of Directors’ Jan. 29 meeting, noting that the check represents just a part of the group’s commitment to DASA and its members.
“We are so proud of our CCFR crews and St. Peters community for making these community outreach efforts possible,” CCFR Asst. Chief Steve Brown says. “DASA has become one of our primary charitable partners, and we’ve been truly inspired by their hard work to make sports and fitness an option for all. We can’t wait to see the wonderful things they do with this donation!”
The mud volleyball tournament, which in 2018 attracted more than 80 teams, will be held again on Saturday, July 13; more details about how to register will be available soon at www.centralcountyfire.org.
