Police and Firefighters Score Big For Local Miracle League



Last night the Guns vs Hoses Charity Flag Football game was held to raise money for The Miracle League of Blair County
 
The game, held at Mansion park in Altoona, pitted members of the Mountain City Lodge No. 8, Fraternal Order of Police - representing officers in Altoona and Logan Township against the Altoona Professional Firefighters Local No. 299 of the International Association of Firefighters.
 
Last year, the event brought in $4,500 dollars for the Miracle League.  This year, with additional fundraising by Altoona firefighters, the game raised $10,000.
 
Oh and by the way, the Guns won the game 19-13.
