The Cedar Rapids Firefighters Foundation was created in 2012 to promote the wellbeing of Iowa firefighters and to enhance their presence in the community. The Foundation raises money and awareness for a variety of causes that directly impact the lives of children and families in our community.
Managed by firefighters and civilians who volunteer their time and talents, the Foundation has raised and donated more than $150,000 since its inception. Money is raised primarily through our generous donors and annual events including the Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Fire Bowl and the Safe Kids Coalition.
In addition to providing monetary support, the Foundation participates in memorials, services and activities throughout the state to raise awareness and support for firefighters in Iowa.
