CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A charity flag football tournament that pits teams from local fire department, police departments, hospitals and emergency medical service providers for a good cause happens this weekend.

The Cedar Rapids Fire Department will hold the fourth-annual Fire Bowl at Clark Field on the Coe College campus this Sunday.

This year's tournament will benefit Sparky's Truck, a program that uses a miniature fire truck to bring entertainment to children and their families at the Center for Women's and Children's Health at St. Luke's Hospital. The money raised will be used to by things like iPads and Kindles for the program.

The tournament will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is a goodwill donation. T-shirts, raffle tickets and Sparky packs, which include a stuffed toy Dalmatian and coupons from local businesses, will also be on sale.

There will also be a punt, pass and kick competition on Sunday morning at Clark Field. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.
