    StayClassy.org hosted an event to celebrate local firefighters.

    Firefighters are the true heroes that risk their lives every day to help us.

    To honor them (and get ready for Fire Run 2009 on August 23), StayClassy.org volunteers handed out Vitamin Water to local fire stations for "Fire Station Appreciation".

    Stay Classy.org and Vitamin Water partnered together to bring free drinks to several stations around San Diego. Volunteers visited stations downtown, in Pacific Beach and La Jolla to hand out the water and even play a little "spin the bottle" to win some fun prizes.

    The firefighters were all grateful for the community support and the volunteers had fun too.

    "Firefighters do so many things to help our community, so this is just one way to give back," said Shanna Stuhmer with StayClassy.org.
