When Cutchogue firefighter Drew McCaffery passed away from cancer in August at the age of 41, he left behind grieving friends and family across the North Fork.

To honor his life and to raise funds for cancer research, McCaffery’s brother Michael has once again organized a memorial 7K race with proceeds going to the Fire Fighters Cancer Support Network, the Kanas Hospice Center and to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The Drew McCaffery Walk/Run will be held on Nov. 10 in Cutchogue, beginning at the corner of Route 48 and Bridge Lane and will end at the Cutchogue fire house, where Drew served for the community for 24 years.

The race distance is 4.37 miles (about 7 kilometers) in honor of the fact that Drew was the 437th member of the Cutchogue Fire Department, Michael said, and along the way, runners will pass by Drew’s home and the church where he was married to his wife Lauren.

Michael hopes that money raised from the race will help others.

Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10. The race begins at 8:30 a.m.
