On Novemer 11th, 2012 Firefighter Eric Patrie, Age 37, lost his battle to brain cancer. Eric was a 13 year veteran of Delray Beach Fire Rescue. The Delray Beach Firefighter's and Paramedic's Benevolent organized this 5k to assist Eric Patrie's immediate family with the financial burden this devastating disease has created for them. In 2016, a portion of the proceeds was donated to two local firefighters battling cancer to help with expenses that come along with treatment. In 2017, we will be once again donate proceeds to local firefighters battling cancer. Information will be distributed to all Local IAFF offices in our area with submission instructions.
