Running For Burn Survivors
My finishing Picture from my first marathon
I am Jonah Smith, a Captain with the Charlotte, NC Fire Department and a Trustee of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Firefighters' Burned Childrens' Fund. This year I am running my second marathon and my first Marine Corps marathon to honor burn survivors from NC and to represent the IAFF Local 660 and Char-Meck FFBCF. The IAFF Burn Foundation is a leader in providing funding to research, treatment, and prevention of burn injuries for civilians and firefighters. Also, the Burn Foundation hosts a National Burn Camp each year in DC where campers and firefighters are partnered up and attend the many events that this camp puts on. The therapy and education this camp offers is priceless to those that attend it. This year there are over 100 firefighters from all over the country that are participating and each of us will raise a minimum of $1000, however, I want to put NC and especially the IAFF Local 660 on the map by becoming the top fundraiser. I ask for each of you to donate whether it be 2 cents or more to support this worthy cause that supports our mission. Thank you for your support in this undertaking.
Total Donations Collected:$3,720.00

Fire and burn injuries are the second-leading cause of accidental death in children ages one to four, and the third-leading cause of injury and death for those ages one to eighteen. Hundreds of thousands of people suffer burn injuries every year.

The IAFF Burn Foundation, established by the IAFF, is dedicated to fire prevention and burn awareness education, advocacy, burn research and improving the quality of life for burn survivors. Created in 1982 as a 501(c)3, tax-exempt, non-profit, the Burn Foundation is one of the largest sources for burn research grants and the sponsor of the annual IAFF Burn Foundation’s International Burn Camp, held each fall in Washington, DC.

The IAFF Burn Foundation takes a full spectrum approach to supporting the burn community by partnering with other International/National organizations to take a collaborative approach to many initiatives. In addition, the IAFF Burn Foundation works to protect first responders from burn injury or death.

IAFF Burn Foundation programs are funded through the generous donations received from IAFF affiliates, concerned citizens, foundations, organizations and corporate partners. Please help provide life-saving services for the community and life-changing treatments and experiences for burn survivors through your tax-deductible donation.
