Superior, Nebraska – Brodstone Community Wellness is thrilled to announce it will be taking over the planning and implementation of the FireKracker Run. For the past 41 years, Dr. Blecha and a team of devoted volunteers have organized the Superior FireKracker Run. Not only is this race a cherished tradition on the 4th of July in Superior, but a staple in the community. Dr. Blecha, his family, The Superior Joggers and many other volunteers have played significant roles in the success of this event.

Brodstone Community Wellness is dedicated to continuing the great work of Dr. Blecha and his team to create an inclusive event for the entire community. The transition will honor the legacy that the FireKracker Race has built over the last 41 years and complement the initiatives of Brodstone Community Wellness. 

“The FireKracker Run is a fantastic way for people of all ages and abilities to come together, celebrate Independence Day, and get active,” says Jacki Siebecker, Race Director and Wellness Director at Brodstone Community Wellness. “Thank you to Dr. Blecha and his team for entrusting us with this event!”
