About This Activity

Join us on this exciting day Saturday, February 28, 2015, where hundreds will gather to celebrate the great people who serve us through law enforcement and fire rescue as we take on a morning 5K run/walk at 9 am followed by 90 minutes of fun and challenging field day games for both adult and some youth participants.  Choose the appropriate colored wristband when you check in beginning at 8 am event morning, that represents either law enforcement or fire/rescue and every participation point you earn will score a point for your selected team.  Your entry into this event financially benefits the nonprofit selected by local law enforcement and fire rescue organizations.

Your registration into the 5K makes you eligible to participate in any of the field day events. This does not make the 5K mandatory as you have the option to run, walk, or cheer on the 5k participants but you must be registered here online to be a part of the 5K and/or Field Day events.  5K runners/walkers who cross the finish line in the first 25 males and first 25 females will receive a framed award for being a top finisher. Chip times for all participants will be posted later online at in an overall finish time (no age group awards or acknowledgements)
