RACE FOR THE RED & BLUE – FIRST RESPONDERS 5K

Wellington, Florida 
August, 2018

Every year near 9/11, there are races across America to pay tribute to our First Responders. The Race for the Red & Blue First Responders 5K supports and honors Palm Beach County fire rescue and law enforcement charities. These brave men and women are pillars of our communities, and we are honored to give back to them.

WHO: Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad. Our main objective is service – in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world.
