Members of the base participate in the Chief’s Group Fun-Run, Oct. 7, 2016, at Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark. The run helped kick-off the start of the Combined Federal Campaign with $500 of the proceeds from the run going toward charities within the CFC.
The annual Combined Federal Campaign officially kicked off Oct.7, 2016, at Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark.
The fund-raising drive conducted by federal employees in their workplace each autumn supports and promotes generosity through a voluntary program that’s employee-focused, cost-efficient and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
In addition to workplace support, CFC hosts fundraising booths at local base events, such as the Chiefs’ Fun-Run.
The installations Chiefs’ Group Fun-Run helped kick-off the event, setting aside $500 from the entry fees for the CFC, making the CFC’S total donations during the event more than $1,500.
“It’s really awesome that we’re raising money to help support different organizations on base, and helping others in our community,” said U.S Air Force Senior Airman Aaron Watts, 19th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron command support section technician. “The 5K was a great opportunity to meet Airmen from different squadrons,”
People can donate to the CFC myPay and paper pledge forms. Each squadron has a CFC representative who can answer questions about donations and DOD sanctioned charitable organizations.
“We really want to stress that there is something for everyone,” said U.S Air Force Capt. Dillon Deutsch, Team Little Rock CFC lead representative.
