The Cedar Rapids Firefighters Foundation is excited to launch our new website. This endeavor would not have been possible without the generosity of J.W.Morton & Associates. Their expertise, patience and direction are just a small part of their overall outstanding business solutions.
In the coming months, our foundation will launch our newest program, Sparky’s Truck, which will help offer a bright spot to hospitalized pediatric patients and their families at St. Luke’s Hospital. Sparky’s Truck will respond to children with technology, games and books, allowing children to escape the tests and procedures while being hospitalized. This program will also offer assistance and date nights for the families of these children, ensuring that the entire family is strengthened and cared for.
Additionally, the 12th Annual CRFD Memorial Race will be held on Saturday, May 25 at College Community Schools’ Prairie High School. This 5K Race/Walk is a great event which had more than 400 participants last year. Proceeds from this event help fallen and sick firefighters throughout the state. Register online or download a printable registration form and mail it in or drop it off. For more information about the race, please contact Nick Miller at 319-286-5200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
