Jeff Annas Memorial Run Sept. 10 In Wellington

The Jeff Annas Memorial Firefighters 5K Race will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, just in time for the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The name of the race honors late Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue firefighter/paramedic Jeff Annas. He loved running, and this race is a great way to bring the community together.

Firefighters are committed to physical fitness and the community, which are the two pillars of the race.

Fire engines will once again line the race way as many firefighters and their family members choose to suit up in bunker gear to run the race, honoring those who work in public service on this special weekend. The sounds of bag pipes will also fill the finish line.

The race raises money for scholarships for local children seeking to pursue careers in public service or giving back to the community.

The race starts at 7:30 a.m. For more information, or to register, visit
