Dating back to 60 A.D in the city of Rome known then as the Corps of Vigils, Firefighters have been battling blazes, rescuing pets, teaching fire safety to people of all ages, and simply putting their own lives in danger to save the lives of many.
Firefighters work tirelessly to ensure that their community is taken care of. Being a firefighter isn’t about the glory or the money, it’s about how many lives you can change. The Virtual Run Challenge wants to recognize those individuals in the first event of our Hometown Heroes Virtual 5k Run Walk Series.
Hometown Heroes Firefighter Virtual 5k Run Walk has chosen the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation as the beneficiary to this event. The NFFF was created to honor America’s fallen fire heroes and to help provide resources to their survivors A portion of each registration will be donated. So whether you sign up as a team or individual you will know that you are making a difference.
