Friends of 9-1-1 Charity 5k - Team #IAM911

2019 Race Flyer.jpg

For the past 5 years the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) has hosted the Friends of 9-1-1 Charity 5k run/walk. The 6th annual will be held in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, June 15, 2019. According to, “The Friends of 9-1-1 encourages public support and recognition of 9-1-1 professionals, the unsung heroes of public safety, by generating essential funds to provide scholarships, continuing education opportunities, and wellness programs for 9-1-1 professionals across the United States.”

This year, and for the first time ever, the Within the Trenches podcast will be one of the sponsors for this event. It has been a dream to sponsor a national conference event and I couldn’t be happier to do it for NENA, because this conference is where the podcast made its first national appearance. There are many things that come with sponsoring an event like this and one of those is the opportunity to enter the race with up to 10 team members.

With that said, I am looking for people to join Team #IAM911 for this event. If you are interested please send an email to or throughout our social media outlets. This is your chance to further represent the #IAM911 movement by joining the team for this event. I would like to thank my all time supporter INdigital and others for helping make this possible and I look forward to seeing you all in Orlando. I will be accepting requests to join the team until April 15, 2019. After that I will put each name in a hat and draw to see who all will make up Team #IAM911. If you would like to make a donation to the Friends of 9-1-1 Charity 5k, please go to Thank you for the support and, the movement continues…
