The event again raised money for the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance’s Camp I Am Me, which is the first accredited burn camp in the United States for children ages 8 to 16 who are burn survivors. In 2013 the event raised more than $13,000 for the camp through sponsorships and participation.

Inaugural Safety 5K
On May 5, 2013 the Nationally Accredited Tinley Park Fire Prevention Bureau and Fire Department hosted their inaugural ‘Run for Your LIFE SAFETY’ 5K Walk/Run to help raise money for the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance ‘Camp I Am Me’. With increased fire safety awareness as its primary goal, the 5K Walk/Run exceeded everyone’s expectations in attendance and sponsorship.

On June 19, 2013, members of the Fire Prevention Bureau presented checks for more than $13,000 to "Camp I Am Me," whose mission is to provide a safe environment for children who have experienced significant burn injuries. There is no cost to the children’s families; the IFSA even provides transportation to and from camp. This is made possible solely through the generous donations received for the camp and its prevention programs. Visit for more information.
