Believe 271 5K Run/Walk

July 27th, 2019

5th Annual Believe 271 5K run/walk. This event is to help raise money for the Believe 271 Foundation. This foundation was founded in February 2014 to raise money for an Oneida County Fire Coordinator Car 271, Brian McQueen who was fighting a battle with cancer. He graciously turned down this money in hopes that it would start and grow a foundation to help other firefighters who also have taken ill. This foundation has helped to date 50 men and women that have become ill. The Bridgewater Fire Company is taking all proceeds from this event and donating them to the Believe 271 Foundation to help them help other firefighters and ladies auxiliary members that have become ill.

This 5k run/walk is an out and back race on Route 8 in Bridgewater. It will start and end at the Town Park in Bridgewater. This is a timed race. Timing will be done by the Clarks Sports Center.
