The Buffalo Gap Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting its first-ever walk, run, or bicycle event to help raise money for a new pumper truck fund. With the recent wildfires this past year, all area fire departments have stretched their firefighting equipment to its limits.

The Buffalo Gap Volunteer Fire Department (BGVFD) is in dire need of a new pumper truck and other equipment to keep its firefighters ready for whatever comes their way. This "First Annual Walk, Run or Bicycle Fundraiser" will be on Saturday, October 1st, 2022 in scenic Buffalo Gap, Texas.

This event is FREE and open to kids, youth, and adults alike

All the fun begins at the Old Settlers Reunion Campground, with most events beginning around 10 AM. To participate, register in advance and online at BuffaloGapVFD.com or one can register in person on the day of the event before 10 AM. This event is FREE and open to kids, youth, and adults alike.

The bicycling event will be a 12.5-mile ride while the walk and the run event is only a 3-mile event. The BGVFD will be handing out free water guns for the first 25 kids age-10 and under to arrive at the event. Plus there will also be a dunk tank, face painting, a Bouncy House, and so much more.

With October being Fire Prevention Month the Buffalo Gap Volunteer Fire Department wants to start the month with a fun family event while raising money for their pumper truck and other equipment needs.

The Buffalo Gap volunteer firefighters will be carrying around cash boxes accepting cash donations. You can donate online here at Simply Give.com/, text your dollar amount to 325-221-4004, or simply mail a check to BGVFD, PO BOX 832, Buffalo Gap, TX 79508.
