“The Henrico Firefighter Foundation is delighted to be a part of Track Laps for Charity at Richmond Raceway,” said Stokes Grymes, President, Henrico Firefighter Foundation. “Start your engines for a fun family experience that benefits both our foundations and all Henrico residents.”

The Henrico Firefighter Foundation was established to aid and assist the Henrico County, Virginia Division of Fire firefighters, first responders, emergency response personnel, emergency medical services personnel, civilian staff, retirees and volunteers to accomplish the mission of the Division of Fire.

The Foundation assists citizens before, during and after a time of crisis, disaster or emergency incident, including immediate emergency relief, monetary support and education. This is accomplished by supporting all things necessary to accomplish the mission of the Division of Fire, including assistance with ceremonies and receptions for firefighter graduations, retirements, promotion and recognition programs. Additionally, the Foundation provides grants and scholarships for Division personnel to attend conferences, seminars, training, education events and other programs.
