COBLESKILL, N.Y. (NEWS10) -- Hero Fund America was created to honor first responders.
The 6th annual 'Run 4 The Hills' race is coming up on May 4th.
From law enforcement to firefighters, racers competing in the Duty Gear Challenge navigate a four-mile course wearing sometimes up to 50 pounds of gear.
Ricky and John are in their 70s, but that doesn't stop them from competing each year.
For registration and race information, visit Hero Fund America's website.
