CINCINNATI – Local police, firefighters, EMS professionals and military personnel put on different uniforms Saturday in order to raise money for charity.

The group is a football team called the Cincinnati Ambassadors, and they took to the field at Taft High School for a friendly game benefiting Building Blocks For Kids, a group that works to improve the lives of children with otherwise unmet health-related needs.

Building Blocks helps about 400 local children with programs like hearing resources and therapy dogs. For more information, check out their website.

The Ambassadors took a win over the Mount Vernon Militia. They will play five games this season against other teams of first responders and law enforcement. Check out their Facebook page to keep up with the schedule.
