HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A group of firefighters identified as "Team Horry" traveled to Virginia to compete in the Combat Challenge. 

The Competition Team is made up of  firefighters that compete against other departments from around the world. Competing is only part of the team.  The members are in top shape and try to promote physical fitness in places where physical fitness is often neglected.  

According to Horry County's Combat Challenge webpage, the team is also active in their community.  Throughout the year they not only visit local establishments, but when they are competing out of town they try to visit local hospitals to see children.  When the team went to the World Championships at Las Vegas in 2004, they visited a local Children's Hospital that was never visited by a Fire Department.  Later that year the team was recognized by County Council and given an award.

The Team Horry Facebook said "Team Horry is bringing home Gold from VA Beach. Thank you to all our supporters, especially to our families who tolerate the hours of us away from home. Love you all see you soon."
