Fundraiser for Firefighter and his family
Hello we are looking for donations to help a good friend and his family. We have created the Arvada Firefighters Foundation to help families and individuals in our area. Any help would be appreciated I have attached all the information.
Arvada Fire Department Colorado
“Run for the Roomes”
Arvada Firefighters respond to thousands of medical emergencies each year. Firefighters see first hand how serious illnesses affect the lives of our customers and their families. Firefighters themselves and their families are not immune to these illnesses and sometimes we encounter the reality that we may have to respond to assist one of our own. This reality became apparent just recently. Susan Roome, wife of Arvada Firefighter Robb Roome, was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
Increased medical costs and a significant life-style change will now be a reality for this mother of three. On September 22nd starting at 9am, Arvada Firefighters will be hosting a 5K Run/Walk and barbecue event in Susan Roome’s honor. The “Run for the Roomes” will start at Oak Park (64th Place and Oak) in Arvada. The barbecue will consist of food, entertainment, silent auction, and a raffle. The cost for the run will be $40.00 and includes: registration for the run, a T-shirt, lunch (courtesy of Texas Roadhouse), and a raffle ticket. Children 12 and under are free. $10.00 raffle tickets which include the all you can eat Barbecue will also be sold for those who don’t wish to participate in the 5K but wish to spend the afternoon supporting Susan Roome.
Arvada Firefighters are asking for your support in order to help the Roome family. This help can be in the form of a gift certificate or merchandise to be given away at the raffle or silent auction. Monetary donations will also be accepted. Simply purchasing a ticket or participating in the 5K Run/Walk is another way you can help. 501(c)3 status is pending making donations tax deductible. Proceeds will go to benefit Susan Roome and her family.
