Back the Blue 5K and WASTATE C.O.P.S are working together to host the inaugural 5K race/walk in Auburn, WA.
In addition to the 5K, there will be a one-mile fun run and different community activities with local enforcement. The goal of this event is to let the community and officers alike get to know each other on a deeper level and to raise money to help further the mission of WASTATE C.O.P.S., rebuilding shattered lives of survivors and co-workers affected by line of duty deaths, through partnerships with enforcement and the community.
The event will take place at Roegner Park on October 20, 2018. The 5K run will begin at 9:00 am and the one-mile fun run will follow at 9:45 am. The full registration is $45 includes a dri-fit race shirt, custom medal, custom bib and a discount on Blue Lives Matter select items. If registered by September 20, registration goes down to $35. The one-mile fun run is $25 and includes a race shirt. Kids 12 and under are free and can run any race, but if they would like a shirt and medal, the cost is $20. There is also the option to run the race virtually. We will send you a race packet that includes a bib, medal and race t-shirt for $45 (also includes shipping).
This campaign has been started so people who cannot attend, but would like to donate have the ability to do so. It's also for people who wish to donate before or after the race.
All donations are 501c3 tax deductible. 100% of funds raised will go to WA State C.O.P.S.
Your support is very much appreciated.
