The 2nd Guns and Hoses Scholarship 5k is set for Saturday, April 22nd at 8:00am at Fort Utah Park in Provo. Current cadets, alumni, police and fire department members, students, families, and the general public are all invited to participate.

Proceeds from the 5K go toward scholarships for fire and police academy students to help train those who serve and protect.

“There are many reasons that students cannot attend the UVU Firefighter Recruit Candidate Academy,” said Andy Byrnes, RCA Coordinator. “The biggest reason is financial. The state of the present economy and being young and inexperienced often means that our students need some assistance with school costs. The funds raised from the Guns and Hoses 5K will provide scholarships for students who may not otherwise be able to realize their dreams.”

This is the second year that the fire and police academies have held the event, and they hope to make it a yearly tradition.

Registration for the 5K is $15. Participants can register online at runnercard.com. In order to be guaranteed a t-shirt, participants must register before April 14th. Day-of registrations are welcome starting at 7:30 a.m., but must be paid in cash and participants won’t be guaranteed a 5K t-shirt.

Fort Utah Park is located at 200 North Geneva Rd, Provo, UT 84601. The race course will begin at the park and head down and back the Provo River trail and will end back at the starting point in the park.

For more information or questions about the race, contact Patrice Bolen at 801-863-6156 or Donna Cotterell at 801-863-7749.
