Fithappens Gym is hosting its 4th annual informal 5K event to benefit Union Valley Volunteer Fire Department. WHY WE HOLD THE EVENT Union Valley Volunteer Fire Department consist of all volunteers. Volunteer firefighters must be properly trained and certified. A fire department has many cost associated with it - firefighter’s full gear can cost over $15,000, hundreds to thousands of dollars to maintain equipment, training, fuel, supplies, and more. To ensure these men and women are fully prepared to serve their communities, this is a cost that cannot be avoided. While both the federal and state governments have possible grants that fire departments can apply for, this is rare meaning they are still heavily self-funded. The best source of these funds is the local community. That’s the reason each year Fithappens Gym holds an annual 5K walk/run. We appreciate everything that our Volunteer Fire Department does for our community. This is our way to support and give back to them. All proceeds go to the Union Valley Volunteer Fire Department.
