Boston Marathon 2016: Boston Firefighters Children's Fund
Organized by: Santos "JR" & Jane Ortiz
EVENT DATE Apr 18, 2016
We are honoured and privileged to run the 2016 Boston Marathon as members of the Boston Firefigher marathon team. This year, the team will be running to support the Boston Firefighers Childrens Fund.
In 2006 Lt Robert Killduff formed the children’s fund to assist children that felt the pain of losing all of their belongings due to fire during the holiday season. This year alone two fires destroyed homes in Hyde Park and Dorchester. Within days the fund provided checks to the families to help replaced articles that were destroyed in the fire. Since its inception the fund also reaches out and helps neighborhood little leagues, church groups, playgrounds and many other groups to contribute to the children of Boston.
There are so many amazing charities and teams running again this year, but to get the chance to be apart of this team is beyond words for us.
We as a firefighter family as a whole have been through some tough years and now we get the chance to run for those who can't.
Any donations towards helping us reach our goal are very much appreciated!
Thank you in advance!!! Jr & Jane
