On Saturday, December 5th Robertson Fire Department and Maryland Heights Police Department are joining forces as co-captains to help The BackStoppers® raise vital additional funding through a fun, team building, COVID-19 safe obstacle run challenge – THRILLSEEKER First Responder Relays!
Team members will complete the course one by one in order to “pass the baton” to their teammate to move forward with the race. The winning department will have the bragging rights for the MOST ATHLETIC First Responders in the St. Louis Region.
Fire/EMS and Police Departments will battle to see whose department is the best of the best by tackling the THRILLSEEKER POWER RUN course! Contestants will encounter 10 massive inflatable obstacles over a one-mile race through the POWERplex!
This event benefits the BackStoppers® who provide ongoing needed financial assistance and support to the spouses and dependent children of all police officers, firefighters and volunteer firefighters, and publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs in our coverage area who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
In addition to our mission of supporting the families of fallen heroes, BackStoppers provides assistance to first responders who suffer a catastrophic injury performing their duty.
