A Benefit For First Responders
Billy Vidal is heading up Team Q102 staff and talent who will be climbing and raising money for the National First Responders Fund. Register today to join our team – or create your own! Can’t do the climb yourself but still want to support First Responders? Donate to one of our team’s fundraiser pages. We want to raise more money than the Alice Radio team! Complete the challenge from September 11 - October 11, 2020.
We hope you will support team Team Q102 with a donation for our First Responders who save lives every day. These men and women always go the distance… for us.
The San Francisco First Responders Stair Climb will be held virtually from September 11 - October 11, 2020. The stair climb event is being held around the time of 9/11 in remembrance of those who gave their lives; Firefighters, Police, EMS, and Dispatchers whose lives are forever affected by exposure to traumatic events. The funds raised benefit The National First Responders Fund that supports First Responders throughout the State of California and helps them to attend PTSD programs.
WHY IS TEAM Q102 CLIMBING? On a daily basis, Firefighters, Paramedics, and Police Officers are witness to numerous tragic incidents while on duty. This recurrent, cumulative exposure to horrific events is the reason that the Journal of Occupational Health estimates that approximately 20% of Firefighters and Paramedics suffer from PTSD, while the general population experiences PTSD at a rate of 3.5%. Treatment options are available, but many are not covered by health insurance and must be paid for out-of-pocket. Oftentimes, these costs are prohibitive for the rescuer in need of help. This is why we climb.
Your donation is YOU doing a virtual climb right alongside them. Every step up is a step for our First Responders. We hope you will make a donation and help Team Q102 raise funds for www.nfrf.org who support our Firefighters, Police, EMS, and Dispatchers who do not think twice about-facing traumatic events. CLIMB TO SAVE LIVES OF THOSE WHO SAVE OURS!
Thank you for making a donation on behalf of Team Q102. Your contribution is deeply appreciated. All donations are tax-deductible. The funds raised will go to the National First Responders Fund www.nfrf.org to be used to fund the treatment of First Responders (Police, Fire, and Dispatch) for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders/injuries and to help Firefighters and their families in times of need.
