Cameron Carter was killed in December 2007 when the LifeGuard helicopter he was working on crashed in Whittier, AK. At the time of his death Cameron was a full time Paramedic/Engineer with Central Emergency Services, worked part-time as a flight paramedic with Providence Alaska Medical Center's LifeGuard, and he was working on completing his nursing degree.
The Cameron Carter Memorial Run has been an annual event at the Alaska Fire Conference since 2010 and we run in honor of Cameron and the entire N141LG Flight crew: Flight Nurse John Stumpff, 47 of Sterling, Flight Paramedic Cameron Carter, 25 of Kenai, and Pilot Lance Brabham, 42 of Soldotna who were transporting patient Gaye McDowell, 60 of Cordova, to Anchorage when the helicopter went down.
The run is 3.43k (roughly 2 miles) and will be open to the public. Money raised from this event is donated to First City Council on Cancer.
