Come out and support your local firefighters with a little friendly competition!  We are hosting our 5th annual 5K Run/ Walk and kids Mustache Dash at the beautiful Camelback Ranch Spring Training Facility. 

This will be a family friendly event so bring the whole crew!  There will be firetrucks and fun for the kids.  Join us in our goal to promote healthy living in our community and among our firefighters! 

Come out and support a very important cause.


They say everyone has a hero and ours are the men and women who served and sacrificed for this country.  All proceeds from this event will stay right in our community and assist our local heroes--our Veterans. 
The money raised will allow us as firefighters to directly give back to these individuals basic needs of housing, transportation, well being and food/water. Utilizing our firefighter’s selfless hours they give off shift and the funds raised from our race, we would be able to provide immediate assistance for these heroes and get them back on their feet. A small token of our appreciation for those who have fought for our freedom.
