The Schenectady Firefighters Cancer Foundation
The Schenectady Firefighters Cancer Foundation was founded in 2012 after two of our own were diagnosed with cancer.
We formed the foundation and started working with organizations in our area to support local firefighters.
To provide members of the Schenectady Fire Department and their families assistance when dealing with cancer. We strive to provide comfort, strength, and hope in dealing with the devastating effects of cancer through education, advocacy, and financial assistance.
All board members of the Foundation are full-time Schenectady firefighters who donate their time and effort to continue the mission of the Foundation. Prevention is possible. The Schenectady Firefighters Cancer Foundation encourages and facilitates best practices to limit exposure to both firefighters and their family members.
We bring to our members the most cutting edge opportunity for screening, prevention, and education.
This event would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors.
Thank you to everyone that attended the 2023 Run 4 Your Life 5k A HUGE thank you for a record year with the 14th Run 4 Your Life 5k! We had over 1000 people in the park, 700 runners and walkers, and for the first time this event has brought in over $50,000 for the Foundation. This money will be a wonderful asset in the fight to prevent firefighter cancer.
