The Haulin’ Axe Run/Walk was initially set up by the Fire District 4 Association in 2011 as a fundraiser for other local non-profits who support safety in our community. District 4 and North Whatcom Fire and Rescue have combined their efforts to create a great event. This year over 200 runners/walkers particpated.
Each year two different non-profit organizations are chosen to receive funds. This year over $6,000 was raised and dontated to the Whatcom Support Officers along with Firefighters for Fun.
Participants ran or walked from Barleky Haggen, off Woburn St. and finished at Bloedel Donovan Park where refreshments were served. All participants were eligible for the numerous door prizes that were donated by local businesses. Congratulations to this years winners.
