This race will benefit the Armando Borjas Jr. Scholarship Foundation. Armando spent 14 years fighting fires and saving lives with the Apopka Fire Department. In 2011 Armando was diagnosed with stage IV esophageal cancer, which he battled for two years until his death at age 39. In an effort to keep Armando's memory alive, all donations and proceeds from this event will benefit the memorial scholarship fund. These funds help send local youth to Fire and EMT school and carry on Armando's legacy of public service.
