Victor Campa knows all about service.
He’s a United States Marine Corps veteran, having served in the infantry from 2011 to 2015. During his time in the Corps, he deployed twice to Afghanistan and once to Iraq, where he served at the Baghdad Embassy.
Since 2016, he’s been a member of the Ennis Fire Department in Texas, where he’s currently a Driver/Paramedic. Campa has been a hero for a long time.
In September, Campa joined the Texas Brotherhood Ride and pedaled his bicycle more than 600 miles across the state as a tribute to the sacrifice of those first responders and their families.
Campa attended Navarro College in Waxahachie for his firefighter, paramedic, and peace officer education. And he has been an absolute standout on the job. In 2023, Victor received the Ennis Fire Department Firefighter of the Year Award.
Yet even as he celebrated that honor, he’s chosen to honor others.
He makes us proud, and so we were thrilled for the opportunity to celebrate him and to have him at the race along with his wife of nine years and their two sons.
The Texas Brotherhood Ride which was founded in 2014 continues the tradition of Honor, Dedication and Pride that is inspired by The Brotherhood Ride based in Naples, FL.
Since 2008, the organization has honored the memory and sacrifice of over 500 firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel.
Because of people like Campa and his fellow riders, those heroes will never be forgotten.

Our hometown is Rockford, Illinois, and we are proud of our town for so many reasons.
Yet we know that for most of the country — and the world — Rockford is known as a baseball city. Specifically, it’s known as the home of the Rockford Peaches of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, made famous in modern times by the film “A League of Their Own.”
We’re proud of that legacy, too.
So we’re paying tribute to our beloved hometown and the remarkable women who graced the baseball diamond during World War II with our newest specialty roast: Rockford Peaches and Cream Coffee.
We know that when you taste it you’ll agree … It’s a grand slam.
It’s rich and bold with natural flavors of sweet peaches with a smooth, creamy finish. As you take that first sip, you'll be transported to an era where strength and determination were on full display, both on and off the field.
Our "Rockford Peaches and Cream Coffee" pays homage to these trailblazing ballplayers who inspired generations. With each cup of Rockford Peaches and Cream Coffee, you're not just enjoying a delightful blend. You're raising a mug to the spirit of Rockford. You're honoring the legacy of those women who defied societal norms and showcased their talent, determination and passion on the baseball diamond during a time when it wasn't always easy.
This coffee is a reminder that empowerment knows no bounds. It's a tribute to the strength and resilience that's deeply ingrained in our hometown's history, and it serves as delicious inspiration to chase your dreams, break barriers and make your mark on the world.
Thank you to the City of Rockford, Mayor Tom McNamara, and Alderman Gina Meeks for visiting Fire Department Coffee and celebrating the release of the new Rockford Peaches and Cream coffee.
You’ll want to keep a bag of this delicious coffee close to your coffee pot, and it also makes a great gift for coffee-craving friends and family who love the movie and the history, or who would enjoy this nod to talented women who were determined to step up to the plate and do what they loved.
So, raise your mug to savor the moment and the sweet taste of Rockford's rich history and the trailblazing athletes who made it unforgettable.
