Hampton Fire Dept. hosts 5k to help two of their own

HAMPTON CO., SC (WTOC) -

The City of Hampton Fire Department hosted a 5K race to help two of their own on Saturday morning. 

The department hosted its first "Hampton Hometown Heroes" race to support Firefighters Catlin Schroyer and Jordan Eaddy, who are battling serious medical issues.

"We've covered the cost of the race through sponsorship in the community so everything that we make off of entries goes right back to those two boys to pay their medical bills, which is a wonderful thing." said Alex Murray, firefighter.

150 people participated in the event, and six firefighters ran the race in full gear.
