BENEFITING: NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016
Each year, the First Due Endurance Racing team runs a Half Marathon presented by M3S Sports to raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (www.firehero.org). We run our own 'race within a race.' Two teams of three firefighters, all in full gear and breathing from SCBA, complete the 13.1 miles in relay fashion. Two captains run the entire event and act as pacers, support, and medical for the runners in gear. Money raised will go to affected families of line of duty tragedy in the fire service. The NFFF strives to improve safety in our profession, and to help take care of those families in need. Approximately 100 firefighters die in the line of duty each year, and we feel this is one way to honor them. Thank you for your support.
