Who is Mark Paris, and why should I get involved?
After more than 22 years of service on the Tucson Fire Department, Captain Mark Paris was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis, leaving him unable to perform his duties as a Firefighter. This debilitating illness, which is becoming more common among firefighters due to the long term exposure to many hazardous materials, is not considered a ‘presumptive illness’ in the fire service and therefore does not qualify for a full medical retirement.
Two years ago the Tucson Firefighters united together to raise money to help Mark and his family pay for his extensive medical bills, and after such a great success, the Firefighters have created a foundation in hopes of being able to help other Firefighters who have become ill or disabled while working for the fire service.
Your generous donation will help to aid those men and women who have given so much to serve and protect the residents of Tucson, and will show how much we truly appreciate the sacrifices they make for our community. Whether you are able to be one of our main sponsors, place an ad in our program, or simply come out and show your support by booking a foursome, we thank you in advance for your contribution.
