About the Charity: Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to lead a nationwide effort to honor America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. The mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their families in rebuilding their lives and work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.
Each October, the Foundation sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. Thousands attend the weekend activities held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The Weekend features special programs for families and co-workers along with moving public ceremonies.
A portion of the proceeds from this virtual race (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). For more information about this charity or to make a direct contribution, please visit FireHero.org.
