Organized by members of the Cedar Rapids Fire Department in 2000, this annual race is designed to raise money for a Memorial Fund for fallen firefighters and their families. Besides the 5K Run/Walk, we also provide a Wheel Chair Race and the Junior Firefighter Half-Mile Fun Run. This year the race is Saturday, May 24th!
In the past two years, $1,750 was given to the families of Iowa firefighters who had passed in the Line Of Duty.
