Proceeds benefit MnFIRE Initiative
Based on 200 estimated miles, each worth $73.63
MnFIRE’s newest fundraiser is a walk across Minnesota to raise awareness and much-needed funds for firefighter health. The multi-day event will kick off on September 12 near Mariette, on the westernmost edge of the state, and make its way through numerous Minnesota communities, including Lac Qui Parle, Chippewa, Kandiyohi, Meeker, McLeod, Carver, Hennepin, Ramsey counties. The walk will end the following weekend at the Minnesota Fallen Firefighter Memorial on the grounds of the State Capitol in St. Paul.
Dressed in firefighter gear, Chanhassen firefighter Doug Foote is planning to walk the entire 200-mile route, and will be joined along the way by other firefighters, their families and community members to show their support for MnFIRE’s important mission.
You can support Miles for MnFIRE either as a corporate sponsor or a donor. And if you pledge at least $1 per mile (equal to $200), we will send you a Miles for MnFIRE hat as a thank you. Your support will help ensure that more firefighters receive the life-saving services in three key program areas: heart health, emotional trauma, and cancer prevention and support.
