A procession of fire trucks made its through Santa Barbara County, raising money for burn victims.
The day kicked off at the Pismo Beach Fire Station, where a $20,000 check was made out to the "Firefighters Quest for Burn Survivors."
The money was raised from this year's Central Coast Firefighters Golf Tournament.
The Quest for Burn Survivors rally started 14 years ago, when five firefighters were severely burned.
One of those firefighters, Bill Jensen, was along for today's ride.
" In the first couple years of the run we would meet a six-year-old kid with burns and that six-year-old kid, 14 years later, still comes back to us, as a friend and as a comrade," said Jensen.
The rally went from Santa Maria to Santa Barbara, stopping at each fire station along the way and collecting donations.
100 percent of the donations goes toward the care of burn survivors.
