This month, we are looking forward with great anticipation to the Third Annual Hampton's Hometown Heroes Charity 5k Run/Walk on October 24 in Hampton, South Carolina. This is a charity fundraiser for Code 3 for a Cure, and the Hampton Fire Department is looking to get as many individuals to run in fire gear as possible and cross the finish line together to display the unity that firefighters have in the war against cancer. Anyone interested in participating can visit the event page for details. I, along with members of our athletic warrior team, will be there on the C3FAC fire engine of hope and honor. A big salute and thank you to Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus, who is making it possible for us to attend this event.
For those companies and corporations interested in placing their logo on the Code 3 for a Cure website in support of our cause, we invite you to visit our "Become a Corporate Hero" page. There you will find sponsorship levels and accompanying benefits for becoming a sponsor of Code 3 for a Cure.
Our gratitude goes out to all involved in the 2015 Mo-Hawk Less Cancer Motorycle Ride and After Party in honor of FF/PM Kevin Oldham, which took place on September 12. We thank the event organizers, the volunteers, Jesse Oaks, the motoryclists, other participants, and all involved in making this happen.
Anyone interested in conducting a fundraising event for C3FAC can visit our "Organize a Fundraising Event" page for guidelines and further information.
We continue to be grateful to all of the athletes who have put forth tremendous efforts in raising funds for Code 3. If you are an athlete who is interested in extending beyond your own personal goals to make a difference for firefighters across the nation who are battling cancer, I welcome you to consider becoming an Athletic Warrior for C3FAC. You don't have to run in gear or be a firefighter to join our team. Additional information can be found on our Athletes page.
On behalf of all of us here at C3FAC, I wish you a safe and Happy Halloween.
