Greetings and Happy Fourth!
I am extremely proud to announce that one of C3FAC's Athletic Fire Warriors, Jake Sinkiewicz, was featured in the July 1 News & Observer. Jake continues to have a great impact in bringing attention to the cause of C3FAC. Other Athletic Warriors that we are also very proud of include Brendan Corcoran, Julie Gennarino, and Jamie Champion. We are honored that these individuals put in such great efforts for C3FAC. Anyone interested in becoming an Athletic Warrior for our cause can visit our Athletes page.
On behalf of myself and everyone at C3FAC, a big thank you to Captain Brock Terry, Chief Tommy Smith, and Fire Chief Lewis Ramsey of the Hampton Fire Department, as well as the entire team of volunteers who represented C3FAC at the Fire Rescue South Carolina conference in June. Special thanks to Miss South Carolina USA, Sarah Weishuhn, who helped man the C3FAC booth and promote our cause among attendees.
On October 24, the Hampton Fire Department will conduct its Third Annual Hometown Heroes 5k benefit and, for the second consecutive year, it will be a charity fundraiser for C3FAC. We are truly grateful to have the support of the Hampton Firefighters. Our goal is to have 300 individuals complete the 5k in firefighter gear. If you're ready to take on this challenge, please visit the event page.
Another great upcoming event is the Mo Hawk Less Cancer Motorcycle Ride and After Party, on September 12 at Jesse Oaks in Gages Lake, Illinois. This event is held in loving memory of Firefighter/Paramedic Kevin Oldham. You can read more about Kevin here.

On behalf of myself, the C3FAC Board of Directors, and our entire team, we wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July.
