The brotherhood and the way the community comes to support it. We're Just a small local town trying to help out when we can." said Deputy Fire Chief Eric Deking.

Many of the participants were running for Wayne Smoulcey. A firefighter that recently passed away from a form of cancer.

Organizers wanted to thank the community for coming out, and hope for an even bigger turnout next year.
