In celebration of Women's History month this March, come run with us, The United Women FireFighters!

The United Women Firefighters is an affinity group of female firefighters  and fire officers working in the Fire Department of New York (FDNY). On September 25, 1982 approximately 40 years ago, the first group of women, 41 to be exact were hired as part of the FDNY. These trailblazing women worked hard to open the door for all the women firefighters that came after them.

For our 40th anniversary we are planning a Gala this September to honor and celebrate the women that challenged the system and opened doors for women to become firefighters.

You can show your support by participating in our Virtual United Women Firefighter Run/Walk Challenge. All participants will have 4 days to complete 4 miles from March 26th to March 29th, 2022. The run can be completed any place and anytime during the four days. Please tag our Facebook page with any pictures of you in your event t-shirts or bib with run results. https//

The proceeds from this event will be used to help raise funds for the Gala and the United Women Firefighters.
