First Responders 5K

Date: August 31, 2018

Length: 5K

Start Time: 6:30pm

Location: Webster Fireman's Field (map)

The First Responders 5K will recognize the strength, perseverance, and courage of Police Officers, Firefighters, EMTs, and their families in our local community. First Responders put their lives on the line for us every day as they face hardships that most of us will never know. The repetitive negative experience of stressful and potentially traumatic events that First Responders face on a daily basis leaves them particularly vulnerable to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We hope that this event can raise awareness for PTSD in First Responders, and raise funds to create a local charity that will provide support, awareness, assets, and services to First Responders seeking assistance in dealing with the effects of PTSD. Join us as we recognize the service and sacrifice of the people who dedicate their lives to protecting ours.
