2nd ANNUAL CANCER AWARENESS FAMILY PICNIC FUNDRAISER
Saturday June 09, 2018
FORT TOTTEN PARADE GROUNDS: 11AM - 3PM
FIRED UP for a CURE is our Cancer Awareness Family Picnic and Fundraiser which allows our FDNY community an opportunity to fight cancer together and help save lives.
At this event, we aim to bring our ill members and caregivers together to send the message that they are not alone in their fight.
We provide educational materials, food, entertainment and motivational speakers. In addition to raising awareness, we aspire to raise critical funds for the organizations that assist our members when they need it most.

The WINNING company/station will be presented with a trophy for all of their efforts at our Free Family Picnic on Saturday June 09, 2018 @ Fort Totten!
