Fireman's Challenge
Members of USF’s Greek community competed to determine who has the best firefighting skills – and while they didn’t have to put out a fire, they had to complete some of the other physically demanding tasks that real firefighters have to do. See what charity benefited, and how much money they received, on University Beat on WUSF TV.

About 400 members of USF’s Greek system braved a cool and wet day to see who had the best firefighting skills. As we’ll hear this week on University Beat on WUSF 89.7, the competition raised funds for a memorial for Tampa firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
