2014 MO-HAWK LESS CANCER
MOTORCYCLE RIDE & JAM
Posted September 9, 2014

Mo-Hawk Less Cancer 2014 photoThe 2014 "Mo-Hawk Less Cancer" Motorcycle Ride and After-Party, held on September 6, was a great success once again this year. We thank Dan and Theresa Oldham and family for the tremendous work they put in to organizing this honorable fundraiser for C3FAC in loving memory of their son, Kevin Oldham. We are grateful to the many supporters, volunteers, attendees, corporate and individual donors. Huge thanks to the staff at Jesse Oaks for their incredible efforts and support in hosting Mo-Hawk Less Cancer once again this year. We also thank C3FAC Athletic Warrior Frank Sulzer, who kindly provided his support at the event.

"Saturday was truly an amazing beautiful day. We want to thank every single person for their love and support and everyone that helped from passing out flyers to spending this special day with us, even if only for a little while and it was so great to make new friends. You are all amazing special people for helping us keep Kevin’s memory alive. I know he has a smile on his face and is so proud that we are 'paying it forward'. We were glad everyone got to meet baby Kevin as he also is a special little guy. Please mark your calendars for next year, it will be September 12th at Jesse Oaks as they also are now part of our family. Until then we love you and thank you!" Dan, Theresa and Family

CALEB SANCHEZ'S
ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE FOR CODE 3
Posted August 29, 2014

This awesome Ice Bucket Challenge is brought to you by Caleb Sanchez, a high school senior and son of Angel Sanchez, Jr., Chief Operating Officer at Phenix Fire Helmets. Phenix has been extremely supportive of our mission by generously providing fire helmets for fundraising purposes. The latest one (autographed by William Shatner and six San Diego Chargers players) was auctioned at the Fallbrook Firefighters Association Charity Golf Tournament on Wednesday and sold for $802. It is this kind of support that makes it possible for us to continue to provide needed financial assistance to firefighters across the nation who are battling cancer. Like Caleb, you can dedicate your water challenge to Code 3 for a Cure--and in so doing help those who put the wet stuff on the red stuff.

SPECIAL THANK YOU'S FROM FIREFIGHTERS
RESULTING FROM 2013 MO-HAWK LESS CANCER EVENT
Posted August 18, 2014

With less than three weeks to go until the 2014 MO-HAWK LESS CANCER MOTORCYCLE RIDE AND JAM (read more about the event in our Facebook cover photo description), we wanted to share the thank you cards we received from some of the firefighters across the nation who were given financial help from Code 3 for a Cure because of the incredible efforts and work of Theresa and Dan Oldham and family, and all the volunteers, who organized and staffed the 2013 MO-HAWK LESS CANCER event—and all who supported it. We don't "expect" thank you's from firefighters suffering from cancer; they are dealing with enough. But when it does happen, the impact on our hearts is indescribable.

INTRODUCING JULIE GENNARINO,
CODE 3 ATHLETIC WARRIOR
Posted August 16, 2014

Julie Gennarino photoWe are proud to introduce the newest member on the C3FAC team of Athletic Warriors: JULIE GENNARINO. Julie is a Physician Assistant who is also an avid triathlete and ultra distance runner. Julie will be doing the Ironman Chattanooga on September 28, a 50k run in October, a 50 mile run in December, and hopes for a 100 mile running race next August. Since climbing on board just last month, she has already raised more than $700 for Code 3. Says Julie, "I want my efforts to make a difference in someone else's life. It's easy to get caught up in 'it's all about me’ when it comes to crossing a finish line. I've had that selfish pleasure. I've been granted a healthy body and I would like to use it for a grander cause...I'm excited to help the Code 3 cause." Today, she wrote, "Out on a 50 mile ride today and stopped in to thank some local firefighters. I also wanted to thank all my friends and family that donated to Code 3. This was just the start to the day. It was followed by an 11 mile run. Now.....I'M STARVING! Tomorrow I'm racing an Olympic distance triathlon (.9 mile swim/24 mile bike/5.8 mile run) and the 6 week countdown is on for IM Chattanooga." Best of luck tomorrow, Julie, and thank you for all you are doing for Code 3 and firefighters around the country!

Jake and Paige Sinkiewicz photoFirefighter Jake Sinkiewicz, cheered on by lovely wife Paige and family, achieved the UNC Wellness Super Sprint Triathlon in Chapel Hill, North Carolina this past Sunday, representing Code 3 for a Cure. Although he just started dedicating his races to C3FAC in January, this was Firefighter Jake’s 11th race already this year for the cause, and he has raised a lot of support towards C3FAC, including securing corporate contributions. But what was different about Race 11 was that this was Jake's first triathlon. Congratulations on this great accomplishment and thank you, brother! We are proud of you and appreciate all you have done for fellow firefighters across the nation who are battling cancer. You can view Jake’s fundraising page here.

RICK VAN TUYL:
MORE THAN AN ULTRAMAN
Posted August 5, 2014

Rick Van Tuyl photoYesterday was Day 3 and the final race of UltraMan Canada, a double marathon (52.4 miles), for Firefighter Rick Van Tuyl. After Day 1, in which he swam 6.2 miles and biked 90, and Day 2, in which he biked another 171 miles, staying well within the required time limits on both days, Rick finished Day 3 and the double marathon race in 12:07, missing the time cutoff of 12:00 by a mere 7 minutes. But to all who know of Rick’s journey and who witnessed what he did out there on the course, he is more than an UltraMan; he is a true Warrior.

Rick's pacer, Brad, describes what he saw: "Yesterday I witnessed Rick Van Tuyl give absolutely everything he had in order to cross the finish line at UltraMan Canada. The strength and determination that Rick showed was truly awe inspiring. Rick was crewed by his father Tom Van Tuyl and son Erik Van Tuyl and their love for him was apparent as they gave him everything they had in order to get him to the finish line."

Says Rick, "Am I disappointed, yes. But, I along with those that were there know that I left it out on the course."

That is far beyond what most people are willing and/or able to give. We salute you, Rick, and we thank you for choosing Code 3 for a Cure as the cause you represent. Thank you for giving hope and inspiration to firefighters across the nation who have their own race to win: the race against cancer.

FIREFIGHTER ANSWERS THE CALL FOR HOPE & HONOR,
TAKES ON ULTRAMAN CANADA THIS WEEKEND
Posted July 31, 2014

Rick Van Tuyl photoPENTICTON, BRITISH COLUMBIA - The UltraMan Canada (http://ultramancanada.com/) is designed to bring forth a unique and challenging test for those exceptional athletes who can go beyond human limits of sporting competition. Why take on such a grueling and impossible race? Three years ago Firefighter RICK VAN TUYL (California) sat with his mother, during one of her chemotherapy sessions, and she asked Rick, “What crazy thing are you going to do when you turn 50?” (Rick was 46 at the time). Already, Rick was training for Ironman Arizona. Six months later, 3 months after his mother passed away, Rick found out about UltraMan Canada. As he read the race description, he knew this was the “crazy thing” he was going to do. The race consists of a 6.2 mile swim and 90 mile bike on day 1, a 171 mile bike ride on day 2, and a double marathon (52.4 miles) on day 3. Each day has a 12 hour time limit. When Rick starts the UltraMan race, he will have executed a 3 year plan to achieve this remarkable athletic quest. Although Rick has a passion to race, he also likes to raise money for charities; and, for the past few years, Rick has chosen Code 3 for a Cure. We are grateful and proud of Rick's incredible achievements and efforts for our cause. We ask for your prayers of safety and strength for Rick, as well as for his crew (his Dad, Tom, and his son, Erik) as Rick takes on this ultimate physical challenge. Godspeed, Rick!

Here’s the grueling schedule:

Saturday, August 2, 6:30 a.m. start at Skaha Beach – 6.2 mile Swim, followed by 90 mile Bike
Sunday, August 3, 7:00 a.m. start at Skaha Marina – 171 mile Bike
Monday, August 4, 7:00 a.m. start at Old Princeton/Summerland Hwy. – 52.4 Mile Double Marathon

TO REMEMBER THE ONE WHO INSPIRED THEM,
TEAM C3FAC PLACES 46 OUT OF 500 TEAMS
Posted July 30, 2014

Team C3FAC photoThe final tally is in, and Team C3FAC (Code 3 for a Cure), made up of 8 firefighters and 4 citizens, raised a total of $1,880 in their incredible achievement of the Ragnar Relay Chicago, running 200 miles day and night from Madison to Chicago on June 6-7 and landing 46th place out of 500 teams. But even though they are superior athletes (they also did well last year, placing 49th), their love for athletics isn’t the reason they did this race. Three years ago, the team lost their friend, Waukegan, IL Firefighter/Paramedic Kevin Oldham, to pancreatic cancer. He left behind his wife and two little daughters. While Kevin was stricken with his cancer, he toured the country with C3FAC to spread a message of "early detection" to his fellow firefighters. His goal was simple, to use his story to save another life before it was too late. The team dedicated the Relay to Kevin. Our gratitude is owed to each of these incredible athletes, listed below, as well as to Waukegan Firefighters Local 473 for funding the team’s C3FAC shirts and for their tremendous ongoing support of C3FAC.

CANCER WARRIOR
Posted July 29, 2014

Ken photoIt isn’t always an easy road for firefighters once they lay down their fire axe and retire. For many, their world is turned upside down as their daily routine goes from jumping on the fire engine in order to save lives to fighting for their own. Ken is a retired firefighter in Florida battling Stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma. His wife Cathy bought him a Code 3 for a Cure t-shirt as a surprise and says "he insisted on wearing it to and from the hospital" during his latest round of treatments. Ken goes into the hospital tomorrow to begin another round of treatments. We ask for your positive aura and prayers of support to surround this Warrior couple as they continue to conquer cancer together. Read more about the impact of cancer on firefighters.





A NEW WAY TO HELP OUR CAUSE
Posted July 28, 2014

Here's a new way you can help our cause: Create your own fundraising page for Code 3 for a Cure on Crowdrise by going to this link and clicking on the box that says "Fundraise for your charity." Then choose "Create a fundraising project" and follow the step-by-step instructions. (Do NOT choose the "Create a fundraising event" option, because all fundraising events require prior written approval of the Code 3 for a Cure Foundation.) Similar to Active, which we still also endorse and is mostly used by athletes who fundraise for our cause, Crowdrise requires no payment of fees on your part and the site tracks everything for you. Checks are sent to Code 3 for a Cure by Crowdrise on a regular basis with no further work on your part, beyond initially setting up the page and telling people about it. Thank you for your support!

JAKE SINKIEWICZ
Posted July 25, 2014

Jake Sinkiewicz photosFirefighter Jake is one Athletic Warrior who is tough to keep up with. Even though he just started running for Code 3 for a Cure (C3FAC) in January, he has already completed 10 races and raised over $6,100. Race #8 is pictured above right—note the “C-3” hand signs (Jake on right). Jake did Race #7, above left, in full gear, including his SCBA mask. Said Jake pre-race, "Unfortunately, I won't be connected to my air pack, so there won't be any supplied air being provided. Even though it is harder to breathe (and run) with the mask on, I'm sure that it's nothing compared to the everyday struggles that are felt by my fellow brothers and sisters battling cancer."

Jake’s 11th race takes place tomorrow, "Raleigh’s Finest 5k" benefiting the North Carolina Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation and the 200 Club, during the South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo. Says Jake, "The run starts at 8am and I would be honored to have you join me and fellow firefighters as we raise money for the brothers and sisters that are fighting to stay alive and for the families of those who have passed." But after his race, Jake will just be getting started. From there, he’ll join fellow firefighter Mike Ward in manning the C3FAC booth that Mike has set up next to his Angel Tool booth at the Expo.

What an honor for me and Code 3 for a Cure.” We couldn’t agree more. We thank FF Sulzer, Dan, and The Biggest Loser for making this happen. On a side note, as FF Sulzer headed up to Erie, PA earlier today, a car passed him and he observed fire underneath the vehicle. The driver didn’t notice until FF Sulzer got her attention and told her to pull over. As soon as she got out of the car it became fully involved in flames. FF Sulzer got her to safety and closed down I 79 until the fire department showed up 15 minutes later. Great job, Frank!
