2019 Believe 271 Old Forge Walk & Run

2nd Annual Old Forge Drill School 5K run/walk. This event is to help raise money for the Believe 271 Foundation. This foundation was founded in February 2014 to raise money for an Oneida County Fire Coordinator Car 271, Brian McQueen who was fighting a battle with cancer. He graciously turned down this money in hopes that it would start and grow a foundation to help other firefighters who also have taken ill. This foundation has helped to date 50 men and women that have become ill. The Old Forge Fire Company is taking all proceeds from this event and donating them to the Believe 271 Foundation to help them help other firefighters and ladies auxiliary members that have become ill.
