Niagara Falls Firefighter's Christmas Fund 5K & 10K

Niagara Falls, NY

The 9th Annual Niagara Falls Firefighter's Christmas Toy Fund 5K & 10K will take place on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at LaSalle Waterfront Park in Niagara Falls, New York. This year we are once again offering both a 5K and 10K option for runners to choose from at the same low price!

The event is being organized by the Niagara Falls Firefighters Christmas Toy Fund. All proceeds will be used to purchase new winter clothes and Christmas Toys for impoverished children in the Niagara Falls area.

Both races will feature an out and back 
certified course (see maps below) along the beautiful upper Niagara River. The start and finish will be at LaSalle Waterfront Park located one block east of the north Grand Island Bridge on Buffalo Avenue in Niagara Falls, NY.
