LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) – Firefighters and police officers battled head-to-head to raise money for children of each department battling cancer.

"Fire and police – we compete a lot, softball, basketball, baseball, some other events. But things like this, coming together, first responders, we are on the same team. We do the same thing. We respond to calls for help," said Detective Anthony Delimpo, of the Lexington Police Department. 

9-year-old Verity Marrow, the daughter of a Lexington firefighter, is battling brain cancer. 10-year-old Levi Delimpo is the son of a Lexington Police Detective. He is battling a rare bone cancer.

"It makes me feel really good that everyone is coming together to help support us," said Levi. "Everyone is kind of helping me through this and they’re helping me get through it. And it’s just been really cool."

The fire department had the fastest time going through the combat course. Dan Dinsmore with the Fire Department had the fastest time.
