On a very wet Sunday during the March long weekend, a very proud CFK team took up the long rope in the annual Fire Truck Pull against the Army, Airforce and our long-time rivals, members of the Australian Professional Firefighters Foundation (Airport and MFS firees) on the main straight of the Clipsal Track.

It was an excellent event with all teams getting into the spirit of the day.  The CFK committee extend their thanks to the CFK team members for giving up their time and for their fabulous efforts on the day.  CFK has had a long-term commitment to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital to support the life saving work performed there every day.

This year CFK has committed to donate $13,830 to the TeamKids Appeal.  Many of you may think this amount is unusual but with this donation, CFK has given

 $100,000.00

to the hospital over the last ten years.  Considering our first donation to the hospital was $1000 in 2007, this is a magnificent and life changing commitment.
