About This Activity

Come out and support your local firefighters with a little friendly competition!  Glendale Fire Charities is hosting a 5K Run/ Walk and kids Mustache Dash at the beautiful Camelback Ranch Spring Training Facility.  This will be a family friendly event so bring the whole crew!  There will be firetrucks and fun for the kids. 

Join us in our goal to raise awareness of heart disease and promote healthy living in our community and among our firefighters! 
Commit to be Fit while supporting a very important cause.
 They say everyone has a hero and ours are the men and women who served and sacrificed for this country.  All proceeds from this event will stay right in Glendale and assist our local heroes--our Veterans.  The money raised will allow us as firefighters to directly give back to these individuals with specific needs and repairs in their homes.  Utilizing our firefighter’s selfless hours they give off shift, we would be able to fix broken wheelchair ramps, assist with grab bars for safer living conditions, along with many other tasks around their homes.  A small token of our appreciation for those who have fought for our freedom.
