remember-the-fallen-5-and-10kThe North Port Fire Rescue Honor Guard host their 6th annual ‘Remember the Fallen’ 5K Memorial Run and the Inaugural 10K Memorial Run on Sept. 10, 2016 at 7:30 am in North Port.

Family-friendly and open to all skill levels, walkers and runners, it’s a flat, fast, loop course with displays of fire trucks, police and military vehicles throughout and post-run celebration with awards and performances.

Inspired by the events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001, this will be a day to remember, honor and support the first responders and members of the armed services who protect and serve our community and country every day. In attending this event, you will be exposed to aspects of the tradition found within the Fire Service. Show your support and become part of this memorial event.

Also included will be the Firefighter Challenge where participants run in full bunker gear (jacket, pants and helmet; boots are not required). The challenge is also extended to any law enforcement or military personnel to run in their gear.
