Denver, CO (PressExposure) March 08, 2011 -- WHO/WHAT: Fired Up for Kids and a panel of local celebrity judges will select the firefighters who will appear in the 2012 Colorado Firefighter Calendar at the seventh annual celebrity judging contest. The firefighters range in age from 22 to 50+ - and are from all over the state -- from Colorado Springs to Vail and Boulder, as well as the Denver metro area. Fired Up For Kids is the non-profit organization producing the calendar, which benefits The Children's Hospital Burn Center. To date, Fired Up For Kids has raised over $400,000 for Children's Hospital.

The audience will have a chance to watch the firefighters strut their stuff on the runway and participate in final selections onsite, to help determine the firefighters who will appear in the 2012 Colorado Firefighter Calendar.
