South San Francisco Fire Department Supports Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation Champ Camp

South San Francisco, CA   April 22, 2022

No matter if they are currently active with our South San Francisco Fire Department, or retired, our firefighters continue to support the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation and the good work they do with children who have suffered burns, most notably the healing Champ Camp. This week-long retreat for the kids offers them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to just be kids among others, who like themselves, have suffered burns. While there is medical staff in attendance, this week away gives the kids the chance to be away from the medical procedures, allowing the kids to play, learn, grow, gain self-esteem, and make new friends.


The camp is 100% FREE to the kids attending

because of the generous donations made by our communities.

Our firefighters, often having witnessed those who have been tragically burned, know the horror these victims must continue to live with, so they step up to help these kids find some normal in a very surreal life.


Now is the time for all of us to step up and be part of this Champ Camp by donating whatever amount we can, knowing EVERY DOLLAR helps!!

This year we can count on retired SSFFD Firefighter Mike Gonzalez to once again take on this challenge “Grow Your Stache Fundraiser” while fundraising to ensure kids can attend the 2022 camp.

Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation was born out of the death of Alisa Ann Ruch, she died from injuries sustained in a fire. Her parents are committed to helping to educate communities, especially our children, of the importance of fire safety and prevention. The Stop, Drop & Roll campaign is one of the successes the foundation has put into play.
Alisa Ann was only 8 years old when she was fatally injured in a backyard BBQ. Because firefighters see up close and personal the devastation fire does to its victims, they have stepped up to bring awareness and funding to this very important organization. Please consider donating a few bucks, it is appreciated, and needed. Do it for the kids.
This current fundraising effort goes to support the CHAMP CAMP, a week-long escape for child burn survivors. In this special environment with others dealing with the same challenges, these kids get to be kids, learn coping skills and establish lifelong relationships, while building up confidence.

All donations are tax-deductible.
