Misson 61 Challenge.


Mission 61 is a FireK campaign to highlight the fact that 61% of the firefighter deaths between 2002-2016 were caused by Cancer. This statistic is well above the national average.

Collectively, we will raise 61,000 dollars for the FireK endowment fund. This will allow us to dispense much needed support to firefighters who are struggling with cancer and the associated medical debt.


YOU can help FireK bring awareness to the cancer epidemic among firefighters by running or walking 10K!  You don’t need to run or walk it all at once.  Running in a local 5K or 10K race also counts.  You can ask friends or family to sponsor you for each kilometer you run or walk, and everyone who raises at least 100 dollars will receive a "Mission 61" shirt in the mail!!

You don't have to stop with 10K. Keep running and posting videos to your social media, making sure to tag FireK in them. The person who logs the greatest distance for FireK will be recognized at next years "Hero's Night" dinner!!

Together we can make a difference!!
