Join Fremont PD for the Run To Remember
Submitted By Geneva Bosques, Fremont PD
Attention runners and friends of law enforcementÉ.
On Saturday, May 10, 2014, the California Peace Officers Association (CPOA) is sponsoring a ÒRun to RememberÓ in Pleasanton, California. A Run to Remember is a family oriented community event held annually to honor and remember peace officers who have fallen in the line of duty. The event is open to all friends of law enforcement and will be held at Shadow Cliffs Regional Park in Pleasanton. The event features a 5k Run/Walk, a 10k Run as well as a Kid's Fun Run/Walk. The Kids Fun Run is a challenging 1-mile course inside Shadow Cliffs Park for kids up to 12 years old.
Outback Steakhouse will be sponsoring a BBQ following the event, which is free for all registered runners. Non-participants and family members can purchase additional lunch tickets for $12. Participants who pre-register by Saturday, May 3rd will also receive a t-shirt. Pre-registration is $35 for adults and $20 for kids, but you may also register the day of the event.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to charities, including Nor Cal C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors), an organization whose sole mission is to assist with the rebuilding of lives of surviving family members of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Each year, 140-160 officers are killed in the line of duty. Their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. has over 15,000 members and provides resources and assistance to help these families rebuild shattered lives.
We hope that you can join members of the Fremont Police Department for this fun event!
