Why This Firefighter Runs for His Life — and His Buddies

Our 'Run 4 Your Life' Races

Start Line Run 4 Your LifeThis year will be the sixth anniversary of the race, called Run 4 Your Life.

We had about 240 participants in our first year, and 800 last year. Walkers can also join in, and we have a kids' fun run every year. One year, the race was before Easter, and the Easter Bunny came. Last year, we had a ChowderFest as part of the day. We also had a Recliner to 5K Challenge for firefighters who weighed at least 225 pounds. This year, the race is scheduled for March 28, 2015, in Schenectady, New York.

All of the firefighters compete against each other's companies. The prize for the fastest fire company is a fire-emitting trophy shaped like a helmet. But you don’t have to be a firefighter to compete, and people come from all over to participate.

My mantra is: I’m running for your life, but the life I save might be my own. When I think about the AHA's Life is Why campaign, my answer to why I do the Run 4 Your Life race is this: Firefighters’ lives are why.
