Cancer is the leading cause of death for firefighters. FireK FiveK is a nonprofit charity that seeks to raise funds for firefighters and their immediate family members who are battling cancer.
Mission 61 Challenge
Mission 61 is a FireK campaign to raise awareness of the fact that 61% of firefighter deaths between 2002-2016 were caused by cancer. We challenge runners and walkers to join forces and log 6,100 km collectively to draw attention to this alarming trend.
Your generous contributions will help FireK provide financial support to firefighters or their immediate family members battling cancer and preemptive cancer screenings for firefighters.
Help support our firefighters!
We partner with many sponsors for our annual 5K fundraising run. We sincerely thank all of our sponsors who help us with both financial support and in-kind donations. Take a look at our Platinum and Gold sponsors.
