Although a trivia game there is nothing trivial about its purpose or results. FIREBALL RUN is often referred to as “the most fun you will ever have, doing the most important thing you’ve ever done.” As each FIREBALL RUN team is assigned a missing child from their home region and provided thousands of posters to distribute along the route. A decal featuring the child is affixed to the vehicle, creating a rolling awareness campaign. To date, the effort has assisted in the recovery of 38 missing children. FIREBALL RUN’s philanthropic campaign called the Race to Recover America’s Missing Children is the largest active recovery effort for missing and exploited children in the country.
