Fifty children who are battling cancer along with some who are survivors were celebrated with a party that featured piles of gifts from Hydrants of Hope, which is a nonprofit run by Tulsa Firefighters after being founded in 2012 by late firefighter Mark Meyer.

All proceeds from the sales of merchandise and the annual women's firefighter calendar go to paying for prescriptions, fuel, other urgent needs and fun items like bicycles, fishing poles and toys. More than $26,000 was spent on kids for the Saturday event that was held at the Tulsa Fire Department's training center.

As part of this year's Spring Fling, there was lunch, Safari Joe's H20 had a petting zoo, princesses and comic book characters and Joy in the Cause therapy dogs visited with kids, and more.
