Lakeside Firefighters Run for Charity

On November 19, 2010,  firefighters from Lakeside's  Blossom Valley (FS26) and Riverview fire stations (FS1) participated in Riverview Elementary's annual Jog-a-thon. Schools utilize this type of event to raise awareness about the importance of physical fitness, fundraise for classrooms and to offer the children opportunities to compete for prizes. Lakeside Firefighters look forward to participating in these type of events that provide us an opportunity to interact with the public in such a positive way.  In today's case, they also got some exercise in, completing a 9-mile run during the 90-minute Jog-a-thon consisting of three separate groups of children.
