East Lake Fire Rescue will be holding their 8th Annual 5k Run/Walk for Charity on October 16th, 2021 at 8am. This event could potentially turn virtual due to Covid-19. Event proceeds will benefit various local charities and families in need that our firefighters may come across throughout the year. We count on community members, organizations, and companies to join our forces as either a sponsor or registrant to make this wonderful event come to life. If you are interested in sponsoring our event, please check out our Sponsorship Agreement Form.

This year we have decided to dedicate our event to Deputy Michael Magli and will be donating a portion of the event’s proceeds to his family. Born in Ozone Park, New York, Deputy Michael Magli came to the Tampa Bay area in 1994. Initially hired as a part-time Criminal Justice Specialist, Deputy Magli transferred to a deputy recruit position and was assigned to the Patrol Operations Bureau in 2014. He served eight years with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. On Wednesday February 17, 2021, Deputy Magli lost his life in the line of duty. He leaves behind his wife, Stephanie, and two young daughters. His name will be added to memorials for Pinellas County Law Enforcement and the Florida Sheriffs Association.
This is a reoccurring fun event for the community and other public safety agencies. We are currently working on obtaining materials to stuff 500 goody-bags which we will provide to all runners/walkers. We are hoping to obtain various samples of products, goods and/or coupons. If you are interested in contributing goody bag items, please contact us. Goody bag items are due 10/11/20. To register for the event, please visit: www.imathlete.com/events/ELFR5K20
Thank you for your consideration.
