Description

The Rockford Fire Department welcomes you to participate in the 17th Annual 911 - 3K Run/Walk. The in-person event is proceeding as scheduled with COVID-19 safety guidelines We are also offering a virtual walk/run on the same day as the live event for those of you who prefer that option or just can't make the live event. The virtual event will only take place on the same date as the live event. No prize money or placement medals will be provided with the virtual option. A bib, finisher medal, and race shirt will be included with the virtual option. Please take pics and post your virtual run times to our race site.

 

This event was formed to bring Fire and Medical prevention education to our community. 911 is symbolic in alerting your emergency and allows us to educate adults and children with its purpose. As you notice, our start time also carries the same significance (9:11am).  Proceeds are utilized to educate our Community in fire prevention, safety, and risk reduction. Many age groups from toddlers thru senior citizens will benefit from our programs. Rockford Fire has direct contact with over 60,000 people per year. We reach many more with the use of social media and public service announcements. Rockford Fire utilizes many training aids to illustrate fire and medical education to our community. Additionally, part of the proceeds will be used to fund the Illinois Fire Safety Alliances' "Camp I Am Me". The IFSA has held this special and unforgettable camping experience for young children who have sustained burns, providing them with a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere to help build their self-confidence and self-esteem. We thank you for your support.
