Hi everyone! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the BFD Relief Fund and supporting our first responders! I am honored to be selected as part of the 2019 Marathon Team for the Relief Fund. I am excited to help raise funds for an amazing group of individuals who are always there to help us in times of need. The fire department has been there for me on multiple occassions when I needed help and assistance and I am excited to be a part of this team to help give back. I grew up in the city of Boston, and as my interest in running grew, the Boston Marathon has always been a dream of mine. Running to support this group makes race day even more special.
The Boston Fire Department Relief Fund is proud to have an amazing set of runners on this year's 2019 Boston Marathon Team. These dedicated individuals will be raising money to help support The Boston Fire Department Relief Fund's Mission. Following the Great Fire of 1872, the Boston Fire Department Relief Fund was established by the citizens of Boston to assist firefighters and their families in time of personal need. Today, the Relief Fund insures that all firefighters, both active and retired, receive the medical treatment that they need. For over 140 years, the Boston Fire Department Relief Fund has continued their support of the Department’s active and retired members. Help us help the men and women of The Boston Fire Department!
