Biking for First Responder's Mental Health

Tax deductible
This June,  Marc Warren will once again embark on a one-day, 100 percent human-powered bicycle ride through the 150-mile Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) to raise awareness about the importance of firefighter/EMS behavioral health.

His goal is to double his fundraising total from last year to raise a total of $5,000 to support the National Volunteer Fire Council’s (NVFC) Share the Load™ program. This is Marc's third year doing this ride and this year's ride is bittersweet as the international fire service is mourning the loss of Heather Schafer, who was the CEO of the NVFC since 1994. Marc will bike in her honor. 

To learn more, read Marc's interview from last year:
