Start with the run. Stay for the fun! The Naperville Professional Firefighters for a Cause and the Naperville Fire Department will be hosting the inaugural Stop, Drop and Run 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance’s Camp ‘I am Me.’
This run/walk around the Public Safety Campus on Aurora Avenue will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 14, 2017. The Public Safety Open House will take place after the run beginning at 10 a.m.
The beneficiary of the walk/run funds, Camp ‘I Am Me’, is a special and unforgettable one-week camp experience for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns. Camp ‘I Am Me’ provides the setting for child burn survivors to share their common experiences while being able to play and not feel self-conscious about their scars. Through the generosity of donors, supporters and volunteers, the IFSA offers this camping opportunity at no cost to campers; including lodging, meals, activities and transportation to and from camp (YMCA Camp Duncan- Ingleside, IL).
The purpose of this event is to disseminate important crime and fire prevention information to the residents of Naperville and to encourage citizen action regarding crime and fire prevention strategies. Both departments firmly believe that citizens are the number one defense against fire and crime and want to spread the word that residents need to “Prepare, Practice and Prevent” in order to keep their families safe.
