On Monday 11, June 2012 Wake & District sent a piper to kick-off the Raleigh FD – National Fallen Firefighters Golf Tournament. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, was created by the United States Congress to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the nonprofit foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers.
In 2004, the first Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament was held to raise awareness and to help sustain the programs of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Now in its eighth year, the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf has grown to include over 35 regional golf tournaments.
A collection of WONDERFUL photos from the event can be seen here.
