Jeff Annas Run Returns Sept. 13

Local firefighters will raise money for Little Smiles and scholarships at the Jeff Annas Memorial Firefighters’ 5K set for Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Wellington Amphitheater.

The race starts at 7:30 a.m. and will be followed by a party.

Community members will come out and race, and many firefighters will also race in full bunker gear, showing their patriotism and commitment to physical fitness.

The annual race raises money for Little Smiles, a nonprofit that helps sick children in local hospitals, and the Jeff Annas Memorial Scholarship Fund, which gives scholarships to local high schoolers interested in professions that include community service.
