(FWOA) would like to thank all of the Associations, Corporations and individuals who have helped make the first eleven FWOA sponsored NAWEOA Museum 5K Torch Run/Walks a GREAT success. Contributions from the first eleven events have allowed us to donate over $100,000 to the NAWEOA Museum and Fallen Officer Memorial. All net proceeds from the event are provided in full to the Game Warden Museum and Officer Memorial Project.
The success of the run/walk relies on the continued support from wildlife officers, their family members, their associations and concerned organizations and corporations. We are again asking for your support of the 2013 5K run/walk to make this the most successful event to date!
Your Association can also participate by making a donation to the run. By making a donation, your association will be listed on the back of the commemorative T-shirt that will be provided to all participants. If your association is interested in donating to the Torch Run/Walk project, please fill out a donation form. See link below.
If you have any questions, please contact Ellen Goeckler, event coordinator at 781-915-7377 or at FWOASecretary@aol.com
