The Wives of Warriors (WOW) will be hosting the 5th Annual 5k honoring All Fallen Officers and also All Law Enforcement heroes that currently serve. Special Thanks to the Tupelo Running Club for directing and assisting with our race.
W.O.W. is a group of ladies that share a common thread: we are proud, we are strong, and we love a law enforcement officer. The Wives of Warriors will be honoring and remembering our thin blue line heroes with a 5k that you will remember forever. All monies raised will stay within the state of Mississippi to purchase body armor (bullet proof vests) for departments that cannot afford to purchase them and to help officers and their families in need, all in memory of Sgt. Gale Stauffer and Mst. Sgt. John Collum. In 2015 we were able to purchase vests for 16 officers. In 2016 we were able to purchase vests for 34 officers. In 2017 we purchased vests for 39 officers and hope to purchase even more this year! We hope to have as wonderful an event this year as we did last September. Be on the look out for more information as we plan and prepare!
