5K to Honor Fallen Firefighter

In 2012, Delray Beach firefighter Eric Patrie lost his battle to brain cancer. He was only 37, and he was a 13-year Delray Beach Fire Rescue veteran.

In his honor and to raise money to help Patrie’s family and other firefighters and their families who are battling cancer, the Delray Beach Firefighters’ and Paramedics’ Benevolent Fund is holding the 4th Annual Firefighter Eric Patrie 5K on May 14. The 3.1-mile race starts at 7 a.m. at 340 S. Ocean Ave. in Delray Beach.

The cost to run or walk the 5K is $30 for adults and $20 for kids 13 years and younger. Proceeds go to Delray Beach Firefighters’ and Paramedics’ Benevolent Fund.

There’s lots on tap at this event. Children can participate in a free quarter-mile kids’ run (starting around 8:15 a.m.), face painting and checking out firetrucks. Families can enjoy a pancake breakfast and more.
