About This Activity

Want to help children in need? As police officers serving the city of Brawley, we see many children in need. It was an eye opener for many officers to see how many children really do need this help as their families are struggling to care for them and pay their medical bills. So we got together and came up with this idea to do a color run in an effort to give back to the children of our community. We decided that a 5k color run throughout the city of Brawley (the BPSEA Color for the Kids) would be a great way to raise money and have fun.

This race will be the first of many. Our goal is to give back to our community through fundraisers like our toy drive, our Splash Party, and this 5k run. We hope that we meet your expectations and you will participate in our other events.

We are hoping to have vendors and entertainment after the race. Come out and enjoy the weather before it get hot. Let us, as a group, raise money for the children of our community while having a blast.
