C3FAC recently attended FDIC (Fire Department Instructors Conference) in Indianapolis, Indiana, and was featured on ABC Channel 6 Indianapolis. You can watch the segment here. During FDIC, we had the opportunity to meet with representatives of Dräger. Dräger has joined forces with us in support of our ongoing efforts to address fiefighter cancer. You can read the recent press release announcing C3FAC's alliance with Dräger. We also greatly enjoyed meeting firefighters from around the country and the world as we shared our mission and purpose with them. We had the pleasure of reuniting with some we have met during our Missions of Honor and Hope Across America. We thank Phenix Technology, Inc. for helping sponsor C3FAC's attendance at FDIC.
The Code 3.1 Fire Run (5k) was held on April 25 in Brawley, California, benefiting C3FAC. This event was organized by the Brawley Firefighters Association (BFFA), and had a great turnout. We thank all who came out in support of the BFFA's efforts to raise funds for C3FAC. A video of the event highlights can be viewed here.
Once again this year, Theresa and Dan Oldham, along with an amazing group of volunteers, are organizing the Mo Hawk Less Cancer Benefit, taking place in Gages Lake, Illinois on September 12, to raise funds for C3FAC. This great event continues to get bigger, and will again be held at the popular Jesse Oaks. All are welcome to attend. Mo Hawk Less Cancer is held in loving memory of Firefighter Kevin Oldham. Read more about Kevin.
On October 24, the Hampton Fire Department will conduct its Third Annual Hometown Heroes 5k benefit. For the second consecutive year, it will be a charity fundraiser for C3FAC. The Hampton Firefighters, along with firefighters from surrounding departments, will also be representing C3FAC at the Fire Rescue South Carolina Conference in June.
As a matter of information, C3FAC is a centralized, nonprofit 501(c)3 public charity located in California and does not have any chapters or affiliates.
On behalf of myself, the C3FAC Board of Directors, and our entire team, we wish you peace and good health.
