On behalf of the Heroes to Hero 5k run I would like to thank you for your past support in helping our foundation to remember and honor our three fallen heroes. As you are well aware of, FF Tommy Stewart, Chief James Sylvester and Camden County’s own Deputy Fire Marshall John West all lost their lives while attempting to save three little girls July 4, 2002 in Gloucester City.
Each and every year since this tragedy, the Heroes to Hero Foundation has honored and celebrated the lives of Tommy, Jimmy, and John. This year’s event, the 9th Annual Heroes to Hero 5K run/walk, will take place on Saturday, October 9 at 9 a.m.
The 9th Annual Heroes to Hero 5K Run/Walk Committee understands that the state of our economy and the difficult decisions that have been made, and have to be made this year. With that in mind, we have formulated a new Donor Form. Our new form has only one level of sponsorship, $100.
If our past sponsors, along with a few new sponsors, continue to support our event, we will be able to continue our endeavor of providing scholarships to three area high schools as well as a continued a large donation to the Camden County Hero Scholarship Fund who is committed to offsetting the cost of college to the children of deceased or geminately injured Police Officers, Firefighters and EMT’s in Camden County.
Your Business/Department/Station/Local/Organizations’ name will be on the back of the official Race-Day Tee-Shirt for $100.
To donate, please send in your donation to PO Box 126 Gloucester City, NJ, 08030 by September 25.
