About Deputy Chief Raymond M. Downey
After serving with the U.S. Marine Corps in the Middle East, Ray Downey was appointed to the New York City Fire Department in 1962. Chief Downey’s
phenomenal 39-year career with the FDNY was built upon success after success and rescue after rescue. One of the most decorated men in the department, Chief Downey received five
individual medals for valor and 16 unit citations. Additionally, referred to as “The Master of Disaster” and “God”, Downey, commanding officer of the Special
Operations Command (SOC), died in the line of duty while helping others escape from the fire and collapse scene of the World Trade Center on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

He was truly a legend in his own time. The Deputy Chief Raymond M. Downey Scholarship Charity Fund

All proceeds from the race will benefit the organizations supported by the family of Ray Downey.
