This event is in honor of our friend firefighter Marc Wright. Marc lost his long battle with cancer in January, so we decided to continue his legacy by raising money for his church and two charities he was heavily involved with; CenterPoint Church (community outreach programs), The Firefighters Cancer Support Network (research and assistance for firefighters and paramedics with cancer) and Safety.net (supports families of first responders lost in the line of duty).
