HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

More than 800 people participated in a Party Run Walk in honor of a fallen firefighter on Saturday. 

Patrick Wolterman passed away last December after falling through the floor of a burning home in Hamilton.  

Each participant in the 5K was given the bid number 86, Wolterman's badge number. Wolterman's wife Bre and wives from other Hamilton firefighters started the race with the first 86 steps. 

The start/finish line had a large 86 written in chalk. 

The Hamilton chief previously Wolterman's fire badge #89 so no one will ever wear it again.
