On Saturday, Nov. 19, firefighters and citizens alike will join together in a unified show of support for firefighters across the nation who are battling occupational cancer by participating in the 4th Annual Hampton’s Hometown Heroes Charity 5K Run/Walk in Hampton.

One of the regulars at the race is Burton’s Lt. Alex Murray, who has been an active participant with this event every year..

Initially organized by the Hampton Fire Department as a fundraiser for two of their own firefighters, the cepartment has since turned the event into an annual fundraiser for Code 3 for a Cure (C3FAC) to assist fellow firefighters across America who are suffering with occupational cancer.

C3FAC founders and other team members will be in attendance, and some of the firefighters participating will wear their fire gear as a symbol of support for all firefighters who are battling occupational cancer.
