About the Race

The Fallen First Responders Association is a charity and nonprofit that was founded in 2019.

The main purpose of our association is to financially assist the families of our Fallen First Responders Association members who are killed in the line of duty.

FFRA defines first responders as active Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters (paid and volunteer), Corrections Officers, Probation/Parole Agents and EMS to include EMT’s and Paramedics.

Financial assistance comes in the form of an immediate relief grant within 48 hours of the members line of duty death. The grant dollar amount for 2019 through 2020 is set at $25,000 and will be re-evaluated every two years. The grant can be deferred by the family (beneficiary) and used at a later time if financial hardship occurs. It can also be deferred and converted to an educational grant for the children of our fallen member.

Additionally the FFRA will offer two scholarships, training or equipment grants and “FFRA Covers Your 6” where we will provide ballistic or stab proof vests to first responders whose departments do not provide them. We hope you will join us as a sponsor, attendee or volunteer. The event will be held on September 2, 2019.
