Due to the generous help of our sponsors, runners and other donations, we were able to donate the complete $110.00 entry fee of every runner in 2018 and then some! It is our hope that we can do the same in 2019. This, as well as any additional proceeds will be split among these two organizations.
Wildland Firefighter safety is of the utmost importance to our organization. We champion firefighter safety through independent investigations, education, and real life support for firefighters, families, and the fire community. Truth-Transparency-Accountability- Change, the future for wildland firefighter safety is now.
The WFGI is dedicated to protecting our Wildland Firefighters, as well as preserving their legacies through such projects as Life Care Packets.
