5th Annual Margo Donadio Memorial - Fire Girls 5k Run/Walk 

Join the Fire Girls of Indian River County to celebrate Margo Donadio’s memory with the 5th Annual Margo Donadio Memorial-Fire Girls 5K Run/Walk.

“During Margo’s fight with cancer she touched many lives and offered help to others who had been diagnosed with cancer”, said Tony Donadio, Margo Donadio’s husband. “This event is a way to keep Margo’s spirit alive and give back to the community.”

This event benefits the Pink4Life Women’s Wellness and Mammogram Assistance Program.  The Fire Girls of Indian River County collaborate with Florida Department of Health in Indian River County to provide a free annual wellness clinic to women in Indian River County who do not have health insurance. The services include a physical and Pap smear. The proceeds from the Margo Donadio Memorial-Fire Girls 5k provide free vouchers to women for mammograms. Early detection of problems discovered during women’s health check-ups increases the goal of improved health outcomes.
