Philadephia, PA (PRWEB) November 05, 2017
Pond Lehocky was a proud sponsor of the 43rd Annual Firefighters’ Memorial 5K in honor of Philadelphia Firefighters who have died in the line of duty. The very first Memorial Run was organized in 1975 to honor eight firefighters who lost their lives battling the Gulf Oil Refinery fire in South Philadelphia.
Today, the traditional run continues, and money raised benefits local burn centers in the Philadelphia Area.
Participants and sponsors of the 3 mile run through Pennypack Park included several fire stations, local unions, and active firefighters and paramedics. The firm was honored to participate alongside these heroes in the run.
