After driving down the East Coast on a 2,000-mile, eight-day trek, what better way to relax than a day in Cocoa Beach?
That’s what the 44 teams of drivers participating in The Fireball Run plan to do on Saturday. And Cocoa Beach officials are encouraging Space Coast residents to join in the celebration that will include a parade and street party.
The Fireball Run, now in its ninth year, calls itself “the race to recover America’s missing children.” Each team in the race is assigned a missing child case from their hometown area to publicize on their trip. J.J. Sanchez, executive producer of The Fireball Run, credits the event with helping locate 44 missing children over the years.
