This 5k/1 mile fun run is to help raise money for the family of fallen Cedar County Sheriff's Deputy Matthew S. Chism, EOW 11-2-14. The money will go toward the family and one of the deputies to go to Washington DC for National Police Week in May. Police Week is to honor and remember the nation's fallen law enforcement and it is an expensive trip. Some of the funds also go to the Cedar County Sheriff's Office for smaller things to benefit the deputies. So far the fund has paid for new tasers, body cameras, lots of ammo, trainings and a few other things. This run is a very beneficial to the family and also the local law enforcement.
Both the 5k and 1 mile, if registered by April 20th, will receive a t-shirt. The option to purchase more shirts is also available. You can still register after April 20th, but you may not order a shirt. Some will be available to purchase at the run but sizes and quantities will be limited.
The number one reason for the run is to honor our local hero, Deputy Matthew Chism. He died doing a job that he loved and that was very good at. Please join us and have a fun time honoring Matthew and all law enforcement! Thank you in advance and God bless!
