Firefighters Raising Money for Burn Victims

Convoy of fire trucks cruising up the Peninsula.

A convoy of new and antique fire trucks and other emergency vehicles is making its way up the Peninsula to San Francisco today to raise money for burn victims.

The 19th Annual Peninsula Firefighters Burn Relay started at Moffett Field at about 8 a.m. and will travel nearly 40 miles north, ending at the San Francisco Fire Department training center at 19th and Folsom streets at about 5 p.m., according to organizers.

Firefighters will be making 16 stops at fire stations and city buildings along the relay route, collecting donations to raise money for the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. The Burn Foundation helps rehabilitate burn victims and provides funds for an annual summer camp for child burn victims called Champ Camp.

Among the stops along the relay route are Palo Alto City Hall at 9:15 a.m., a lunch stop at Foster City Fire Station No. 28, and an ice cream break at Colma Fire Station No. 85 at 50 Reiner St. at about 4:10 p.m.

Menlo Park Firefighters will be raising additional funds this Saturday Oct. 6 with a Pancake Breakfast at 300 Middlefield Road.
