"On Saturday May 1st 2011, a few hundred people gathered at Cherry Hill School East to pay tribute to a home town hero. It was the 2nd annual Jeremy Kane benefit run in honor of Lance Corporal Jeremy Kane who was killed in action in Afghanistan on January 23, 2010. The weather was perfect and all of the supporters lined up for a run/walk from Cherry Hill East High School on Kresson Road to M'Kor Shalom on Evesham Road. After the race concluded, the Kane Family and members of Jeremy's platoon, 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, were gathered at Ladder Company 44's apparatus to unveil its newest member. Chief Giorgio spoke to the Kane family about the importance of our Maltese Cross and our CHFD Patch and that we will proudly display the Unit Shield of 4th LAR. The members of our nations military will always be honored by the CHFD."
