We Won! CFK vs APFF Fire Engine Pull

160315 Fire Engine Pull Trophy 2

We hope you enjoyed watching the TeamKids Beyond Bank Easter Appeal on Good Friday. In case you missed it, we won the fire engine pull! It was a photo finish and we only beat the Australian Professional Firefighters Foundation (APFF) by an inch or two. We had such a wonderful day filming the event with them and we look forward to defending our title next year!

We hope to have a link to the footage up soon.
