Run! will raise money to support local firefighters who require aid often not available through insurance or assistance programs.
Participants in the 2017 Run! Geek! Run! 5K will receive a t-shirt and souvenir “geek” glasses. Bobblehead trophies will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers; top three Masters male and female finishers, as well as the top three finishers in 13 different age groups. The top three corporate and community teams will also receive awards. Race registration is $30 until August 18, $35 until online registration closes on September 20, and $40 at packet pickup and on race day.
Sponsorships for this event provide companies and organizations the opportunity to give back to the local community, as well as gain visibility. All corporate sponsors will have their company logo displayed on the race website, banner and
t-shirts. More information about sponsorship opportunities is available at rungeekrun.com/sponsor.

About Alexandria Firefighters Helping Hands Relief Foundation
The Helping Hands Relief Foundation (afdlocal2141.org) was established in 1999, when a fellow coworker was faced with a debilitating medical crisis. Fellow firefighters and paramedics donated time and money; they provided everything from food, lodging and clothing to transportation for the coworker and their family. It was during this experience that the members realized the need for a fund to support similar future situations.
