September 2014

Lorenzo Abundiz photoWelcome to the official website of the Code 3 for a Cure Foundation. I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe summer.

C3FAC has many exciting events coming soon. One in particular is the Mo-Hawk Less Cancer Motorcycle Ride and Jam on September 6. This very special event was initiated by Theresa and Dan Oldham and family in honor and memory of their son, FF/PM Kevin Oldham. We thank the Oldham family and all involved in supporting this event, including Jesse Oaks. There will be a lot of fun times and entertainment at the event, including a silent auction and live bands. Please visit the event page here and, if you happen to be near Grayslake, Illinois on September 6, we encourage you to attend. We thank Celine Dion for announcing the event. See her announcement here. Our prayers also go out to Celine's husband Rene, who is currently fighting cancer.

Recently, the C3FAC team attended the Fallbrook Firefighters Charity Golf Tournament. Special thanks to organizer FF Joel Hammer and all involved in making this event happen. C3FAC is one of three charities who will benefit from the Golf Tournament. One of the items that went for auction was a fire helmet, generously provided by Phenix Fire Helmets, which was signed by William Shatner and six San Diego Chargers players. The helmet was sold for $802. Many thanks to these celebrities and to Phenix for their support!

For the past couple of years, myself and other team members have been working with a top-rate organization on the first ever concert to benefit Code 3 for a Cure. We are really excited about the positive relationship that is developing. Tentatively, the concert is scheduled for October 18. Location, time, and entertainment will be announced very soon. You can visit the Updates page of this website, the C3FAC Twitter page, and the official C3FAC Facebook page for the latest developments as plans progress.

Please note that the Code 3 for a Cure Foundation is a centralized, national, nonprofit organization located in California and does not recognize, nor does it endorse, any chapters or affiliates. Additionally, Code 3 for a Cure does not recognize, nor does it endorse, any internet site to represent the Foundation other than the following, which link to the official sites of Code 3 for a Cure:

In addition to these links, Code 3 for a Cure has authorized one Facebook page to include the C3FAC name (besides the Mo-Hawk Less Cancer event page mentioned in the second paragraph of this message): it is called C3FAC Running for Our Brothers/Sisters. C3FAC-RFOBS is a group of firefighter athletes located in South Carolina who have made tremendous efforts in spreading the word about C3FAC, including running races in their fire gear and representing C3FAC at various events. You can visit the C3FAC-RFOBS page to keep up with their latest activities.

If you have any questions about our policy with regard to authorized sites, we encourage you to contact us at firefighters@code3foracure.org.

For any athlete who would like to compete for the C3FAC cause, we invite you to visit our Athletes page. There you will find information on how you can become involved, as well as the guidelines for fundraising for C3FAC.

We are happy to say that the Foundation is continually growing in a very positive direction. With the continued support of individual donors, athletes who fundraise, and generous corporate sponsors, we will one day operate at 100% and will thus be able to help firefighters all over the country in greater and greater ways as they battle cancer.

Blessings of good health to all of you,
