What We Do
Since 2005, the Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission (KCMCC) has hosted the Guns N Hoses event that pairs our area's finest Police Officers, Fire Fighters and Paramedics to compete in sanctioned boxing matches that celebrate the strength, dedication and loyalty of these awesome men and women. This event benefits the programs of the KCMCC, primarily the Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment Fund (SAFE).
Who We Help
SAFE provides financial assistance to the dependent families of first responders in SAFE's 12-county coverage area who are killed or suffer catastrophic injury in the line of duty. Often, insurance and other benefits can take weeks or even months to pay while the financial responsibilities for the family do not stop. One of the most important aspects of SAFE is the immediate financial assistance provided within 24-48 hours following the tragic loss of their loved one.
Kansas City Guns N Hoses has grown into one of the largest fundraisers for the Crime Commission's SAFE program. We are proud to share that our family benefits have progressed from $3,000 when we began in 2005 to $25,000 today, thanks in part to events like this and all of our dedicated boxers, volunteers and patrons.
