About This Activity

The Survive the Burn 5K/10K is a family-friendly, competitive , USATF-certified, professionally timed race for runners, walkers, firefighters and children.  Awards for biggest and fastest individuals and teams, and biggest and fastest Fire Department Teams, along with most funds raised, will be given!  There will be fire engines, games and activities for the whole family, food and drinks provided by our sponsors. 


STB proceeds directly benefit children affected by fire and families of firefighters injured in the line of duty. 

  • Half of our net proceeds supports our partnership with the Oregon Burn Center to sponsor child burn survivors to the annual Burn Congress, and to develop programs to support child burn survivors to adulthood.  
  • One-third of our net proceeds support firefighter families in need, when their adult firefighter is injured in the line of duty, along with the International Association of Firefighters’ burn fund.
  • We also support education for children and families to prevent child-set fires.
