About This Activity

History & Mission
A committee was formed in late 2018 within the Oshkosh Police Department, who's mission is to help combat the stigma associated with law enforcement officers and mental health. Our goals are to offer our officers, non-sworn staff and law enforcement families of the Oshkosh Police Department support, education, training and awareness in mental health and resiliency. 

Community Support
By participating in this annual 5K fun run/walk, we offer members of our community a chance to help us fundraise for this important cause and help our officers/staff and family receive the help and tools they need. With these funds, the Oshkosh Police Department plans on using the proceeds for:

-Education/training on physical/mental/emotional health
-Law Enforcement resiliency training
-Speakers related to mental health & wellness
