What will the event benefit?

The best part about local runs like this is that a portion of the proceeds almost always go to a worthy cause, and that is certainly the case with the Signarama Firecracker 5k. This year the proceeds will go to Homeward Bound Military Family Support Services, The Northern California Veterans Museum, and Preston Sharp for providing flags for the trail.
