Photo of Alex Murray running with fellow firefightersDo you like to run? Bike? Join our team of athletes by participating in various community athletic events (such as 5ks, 10ks, etc.) and dedicating your participation to Code 3 for a Cure. Simply set up an online fundraising page on Active Network via the instructions below. There is no cost to you, and any donations that come in through your fundraising page are automatically tracked and sent to Code 3 for a Cure by Active Network, with no further work on your part beyond initially setting up your page.

As an expression of gratitude, Code 3 for a Cure provides promotional items to athletes who fundraise, based on the amount of funds they raise. For example, a t-shirt is earned after setting up a fundraising page per the instructions below and raising your first $25.

You can refer to our "Fundraising Guidelines for Athletes", which provides detailed information on fundraising as a C3FAC Athlete. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
