About This Activity

The Auburn Firefighters Association is putting on a 5k to Honor Auburn Fallen Firefighter Capt. Roger L. Brookshire.



Brookshire died Jan. 23, 1977, after responding to a medical call where a man had been electrocuted after a HAM radio antenna was stuck in a power line.

 

All Proceeds will go to benefit The National Fallen Firefighter Foundation:

OUR MISSION IS TO HONOR AND REMEMBER AMERICA'S FALLEN FIRE HEROES, TO PROVIDE RESOURCES TO ASSIST THEIR SURVIVORS IN REBUILDING THEIR LIVES, AND WORK WITHIN THE FIRE SERVICE COMMUNITY TO REDUCE FIREFIGHTER DEATHS AND INJURIES.
