Fire Captain Theresa Snoke and Roxanne Lutter's Charity Hike for the Gary Sinise Foundation on August 10th

We are excited to announce an extraordinary hiking adventure led by Fire Captain Theresa Snoke and her friend Roxanne Lutter. Together, they are embarking on a challenging hike along the Tahoe Rim Trail in August to raise funds and awareness for the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization dedicated to serving and honoring our nation's defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.
