​​2016 (MAIDEN)




 On behalf of Mountain View Firefighters Random Acts (MVFRA), thank you so much for your generous contribution to the Fifth Annual Fire Drill   5K/10K and Kids’ Fun Run scheduled for  April 4, 2020.

 The safety of those we serve and support is always our highest priority. Following the Santa Clara County Public Health Department guidance statement   regarding COVID- 19, dated March 9, 2020, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mountain View Fire Fighters Random Acts Fire   Drill 5K/10K Benefit Run.

 The guidance statement in part recommends, “postponing or canceling mass gatherings and large community events over 250 people.”  Based on this   recommendation, Mountain View Fire Fighters Random Acts feels the responsible thing to do is to cancel the event. The guidance statement is linked   here:  https://www.sccgov.org/sites/phd/DiseaseInformation/novel-coronavirus/Pages/order-cancellation-mass-gatherings.aspx   

 Due to the many unknown factors associated with COVID-19, we are uncertain as to when we would be able to reschedule the event in 2020. We have,   therefore, decided to host the Fifth Annual Fire Drill 5K/10K next year on Saturday April 3rd, 2021.

 Please know that we appreciate all the support the Fire Drill 5K/10K Benefit Run has enjoyed from all of our supporters and sponsors.  We are humbled   by your confidence in us and our mission which is to help those in need in our community.

 As you have generously donated to our cause, we have two options for you to choose from: 

            1) We can defer your entry/entries until next year 

            2) Mountain View Firefighters Random Acts can issue a full refund of amount sponsored

 If you would prefer a registration refund, we completely understand. Please send an email, no later than Thursday March 19th, requesting your refund   with your name and order number to: Dschmitz@usfca.edu. We will compile the list and work with our registration partner.

 We look forward to seeing you next year!
