All proceeds from this race will benefit the RHFD Fire Prevention Museum. The RHFD Fire Prevention Museum was started by the Rock Hill firefighters to share the history of the department and it’s interaction with the community; the history of fire service; and to help educate children and citizen’s on the importance of fire safety and prevention. Their goal is to educate children and the community on the history of the fire department and fire service, the services that the RHFD provides and to teach fire safety and prevention to reduce the number of fires and prevent injuries and deaths caused by fires. Once open, the museum is intended to be open to the public free of charge with a hope of coordinate school tours.
On Main Street in downtown Rock Hill, SC the 5K run/walk and the 8K run will begin at 8:00 AM.
