(KUTV) It was clear the inaugural year of the 2016 Utah Firefighters calendar was a success, so organizers decided to fan the flames and do it again for a second year .

Just few days after sales started for the calendar in 2015, it brought in an estimated $10,000 to be donated to the American Cancer Society. This year the brains behind the calendar hopes to meet or exceed that same success.

The Utah Firefighter Calendar was founded by a local firefighter to raise money to fight cancer.

Nick Honsvick, a firefighter with South Salt Lake had the idea for a while to create the calendar to raise money and contacted photograph Benjamin Sant to make it come to fruition.

"There are a lot of police and firefighters that are affected by cancer," Sant originally said in a 2015 inteview about how the idea to create the calendar slowly evolved into something real.

The firefighters debuted on location TV and became a hit their calendar photos went viral.

This year's calendar won't only feature humans, but a K9 named Heidi who died from cancer.

Along the way, the calendar's progress ran into some bumps in the road with funding, but in the end they were able to pull it off. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.

These guys have proven they don't let anything get them down and are always up for a challenge. They even did the Whip/Nae Nae with is on live TV.
