annual pike challenge
It’s with great disappointment that we are cancelling the Huntsville Pike Challenge this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
We just wanted to let you know that we didn’t make this decision lightly.
Firstly, we are seeing more and more restrictions and precautions taken daily, leading us to believe we are still on the upward trend and that the likelihood that we will be able to hold such an event is small.
Secondly, this event does not just run because of the commitment of fire department. It runs because collectively as a community our local businesses, and community members sponsor and donate to make it what it is. In light of businesses being shut down and the unpredictable economy, we don’t want to be burdening them looking for donations.
We are already seeing amazing things from the community helping each other, donating to food banks, helping neighbours and we want to see that grow. I know it seems like three months away, but March is gone and the event is the first week in June so that’s not a lot of time for us especially with so many uncertainties.
We are anticipating that we will organize the Pike Challenge again in the future and we look forward to seeing you there!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Stay Safe and Stay Home,
The Huntsville Firefighters Association
