'Heroes Run' tribute this Saturday in Prescott
The Daily Courier


United Families is sponsoring a 10K run and a two-mile fun run at Pioneer Park Saturday to benefit the Yavapai College Foundation's Granite Mountain Hotshots Scholarship Fund for families of the fallen firefighters.

The 10K of the "Heroes Run" begins at 6 a.m. at the Gheral Brownlow Trailhead at Pioneer Park, and the two-mile run starts at 6:10 a.m. at the trailhead, where both runs will finish.

Participants can register in advance at www.runprescott.com and www.active.com or from noon to 4 p.m. Friday at Manzanita Outdoor in the Albertson's shopping center on Sheldon Street in Prescott. Runners can also register at 5:30 a.m. Saturday before the races begin.

The cost is $40 for the 10K run and $20 for the fun run. Registered participants will receive purple T-shirts honoring the Hotshots who died June 30 in the Yarnell Hill fire. First-, second- and third-place overall male and female prizes will be awarded to the 10K winners. Top male and female runners in the two-mile race will also receive awards. The top 100 runners to cross the finish line will receive purple bracelets in memory of the Hotshots.

In recent years, the annual run has honored the late Gheral Brownlow, a long-time Prescott resident and running enthusiast. The run has customarily benefited family needs in the tri-city area.

Because of the Yarnell Hill fire tragedy, United Families decided this year to raise money for the Hotshots' spouses and children, organizer Amy Hobson said.

Proceeds from the runs will go to the scholarship fund the college foundation set up for community college needs of the children and spouses of the Hotshots. The two-year scholarships will be available to the family members for attending Yavapai College or the equivalent amount will be portable to any college they choose to attend. Once the education needs of the families are met, the additional money will be used to provide scholarships for students in the fire science program.
