Rockford Fire 911 3k Run/Walk

Saturday August 15th, 2020

Rockford, IL

Official Website


The Rockford Fire Department welcomes you to participate in the 16th Annual 911- 3K Run/Walk. Due to COVID-19 we have decided to re-schedule the event for 815 DAY. The run was formed to bring Fire and Medical prevention education to our community. 911 is symbolic in alerting your emergency and allows us to educate adults and children with its purpose. As you notice, our start time also carries the same significance (9:11am).  All proceeds are utilized to educate our Community in fire prevention, safety, and risk reduction. Many age groups from pre-school children thru senior citizens will benefit from our programs. Rockford Fire has direct contact with over 60,000 people per year. We reach many more with the use of social media and public service announcements. Rockford Fire utilizes many training aids to illustrate fire and medical education to our community. We thank you for your support.
