ABOUT THE EVENT
TK’s 10K is a memorial race established to honor the life and service of Hyannis Fire Department Capt. Thomas “TK” Kenney, a passionate technical rescue instructor with over 45 years of experience in emergency, fire, and training services. TK had an expert teaching ability and his service culminated with his retirement as the training captain for the Hyannis Fire Department. He was passionate about technical rescue knowledge and believed that continual training keeps communities and first responders safer. In his honor, our mission is to provide local first responders on the Cape and Islands with resources to encourage, support, and sustain their pursuit of the best available training and education.
Created by Kenney’s daughters Meaghann Kenney and Lauren Kenney Lynn, proceeds from TK’s 10K (a component fund of the Cape Cod Foundation) to provide local first responders on the Cape and Islands with means and resources to encourage, support, and sustain their pursuit of the best available training and education. Stop, drop, and RUN (or walk) with us in the annual race!

TK’s career in emergency, fire, and training services spanned over 45 years, with an emphasis on technical rescue. A 1972 graduate of Roslindale High School, his distinguished legacy began as a volunteer member of the Boston Ambulance Squad and as an EMT/Paramedic with Boston EMS. Tom married his wife Kathy on June 18, 1978, graduated from Boston City Hospital’s first paramedic class (Medic 106) in May 1979, and later moved with Kathy to Hyannis, where he would become the first paramedic for HYFD. His service culminated with his retirement as the training captain with the fire department on October 19, 2018, a job he loved going to every day. Tom demonstrated his technical rescue knowledge and expert teaching ability by traveling the country leading specialized courses at FDIC, the New Hampshire Fire Academy, Barnstable Fire Academy, and as partner/instructor of Heavy Rescue, Inc. During his career, Tom proudly served as a rescue team manager for MA-TF1, with multiple deployment assignments, including the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, the 1999 Worcester Cold Storage tragedy, and numerous natural disasters. Most notably, he was one of the first responders to Ground Zero the morning of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. Tom served his community and country proudly.
