Run to Remember honors fallen peace officers
Submitted By Jonathan Lance
The California Peace Officers Association (CPOA) invites everyone to participate in a very special event that honors those who have lost their lives in the line of duty, while making our lives safer. The 10th Annual Run to Remember 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 12, at Shadow Cliffs Regional Park, Pleasanton. This is an extraordinary way to salute those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, while at the same time supporting their families and co-workers who are left behind to cope with the tragic loss.
The Run?s 10K & 5K Walk & Run courses are made up of small rolling-hill trails that run throughout the scenic Shadow Cliffs Regional Park. The Kid?s 1-mile run is laid out through a portion of the park?s lawn area. All proceeds from this family-oriented event will go directly to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) (California Chapter), a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to assist with the rebuilding of lives of surviving family members and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed.
Trophies will go to the top 5K and 10K male and female finishers, with medals given three-deep in designated age groups in the 5K and 10K runs for both male and female participants. Special awards will also be given to all kids participating in the Kids? Fun Run (ages 12 and under).
Entry fee will include the always-popular commemorative T-shirt, beverages, awards ceremony. Kids love to play in the law-enforcement vehicles that are brought out and made available to explore. Also, the traditional nearby fly-over and landing of the East Bay Regional Parks? search and rescue helicopter is always an exciting part of the event. Kids always enjoy checking out and sitting in the cockpit as parents snap photos. There will be a variety of food trucks will be on hand throughout the morning.
The entry fee for the 10K or 5K Walk/Run is $45.00. The Kids? Fun Run is $25.00. Download the event registration form at http://onyourmarkevents.com/Applications/2018CPOAREG.pdf
