Back the Badge Michigan is a group that works to honor and support Michigan law enforcement.

We do fundraisers to purchase equipment to help aid law enforcement such as K-9 trauma kits for local departments. We work with other support groups to raise funds to help the families of Michigan’s fallen officers, injured officers and Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

100% of all funds raised by Back the Badge Michigan goes to support Michigan law enforcement.

Back the Badge Michigan’s biggest goal is to bridge the gap between Michigan communities and their police by hosting law enforcement appreciation and community building events.

We are very excited to be teaming up with Back the Blue 5K to be able to bring an amazing event to Michigan. Back the Blue 5K is a run/walk where community members can run or walk along with their law enforcement. Following the race there will be community building activities.

We are asking for your support to bring this amazing event to Lansing, Michigan. Together we can build a stronger community.
