About This Activity

The Emergency Department (ED) nurses at UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg have a great bond with the Harrisburg Police Department (HPD). Upon learning that the HPD only had two Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) within the department and these officers did not have all of the first aid supplies needed, the ED nurses decided to continue the 3.2 to Protect the Blue race. Last year, the ED nurses created the 3.2 to Protect the Blue to help HPD officers purchase protective vests, and this year the tradition continues. This is a typical 3.1 race with a very significant modification. Runners will go an extra 0.1 mile in honor of officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

UPMC and the Pinnacle Health Foundation are pleased to be a part of this worthy event. Join us on Thursday, Sept. 19 at City Island.
