Fun-filled family weekend in Downtown Conway including a 5K, fire truck pull, survivors parade, entertainment and vendor booths. The goal of this event is to continue to develop awareness of the affects that cancer can have on patients and their families. Through our support, we hope to instill hope, faith and courage to these families. A portion of the proceeds will support a local group of firefighters providing support to cancer patients and their families called Hearts on Fire.
HEARTS ON FIRE: Cancer has affected many families of Conway Firefighters in recent years. Cancer doesn’t discriminate against age, race or sex. Hearts on Fire is an organization started by the Conway Fire Department in an effort to show love and compassion by meeting the practical needs of cancer patients and their families who live in Faulkner County. Some examples of this might include assistance with the purchase of wigs, spa treatments, gift certificates for meals at local restaurants and stores, literature provided during treatments, cleaning services, a ride in the fire truck, or a visit from firefighters with flowers to brighten their day.
This program is supported by private donations and fundraisers. During the month of October, all members of the Conway Fire Department will be wearing specially designed t-shirts supporting Firefighters for the Cure and breast cancer awareness.
