First Responders Appreciation 5k - Entry + Medal
They put their own lives on the line for our safety. They protect our communities and our families. They take action when disaster strikes. When everyone else is running away from an emergency, it is the first responders that are running towards it. They are brave, selfless, and determined. We are recognizing the heroic men and women, who protect us, respond to our calls of distress, and care for us in our darkest moments. Join us in showing our admiration and gratitude while honouring these heroes with a 5k!
Courage is not the absence of fear, but action in the face of fear.
