A community organization comprised of firefighters' families is holding a fundraiser turkey trot Thursday in Carson City.
The inaugural Northern Nevada Fire Wives 5k Turkey Trot starts at Carson City Fire Station 51 at 777 South Stewart Street in Carson City. Registration for the 5K run is $30 for adults, $25 for those 18 and younger. You can contact the event director at NorNvFireWives@yahoo.com or 775-721-1396 for information.
The race starts at 8am and is in conjunction with KAIA Fire.
The non-profit was organized earlier this year through the efforts of Renee Pedrini and other local firefighter wives, to assist career, volunteer and seasonal firefighters and their families following an incident in which a firefighter friend of her husband's was seriously injured, and four other firefighters died during a 5-alarm motel blaze in Houston.
All proceeds benefit the Northern Nevada Fire Wives organization.
Membership in the Northern Nevada Fire Wives is open to the public with annual dues at $15.
