About This Activity

The Professional Law Enforcement Association Foundation is just over a year old, but has already had a strong impact on the community.  Through donations and fundraisers we are proving successful in living up to our mission, which is to provide support with training costs and equipment to law enforcement professionals, including k9 officers in need.

Our current iniative, and the goal of this 5k is to fundraise enough money to supply the local Police Departments with new bulletproof vests for their k9 officers!  Police Departments can spend upwards of $20,000 to train a k9 officer and handler, but sometimes don't have enough in the budget to protect these officers.  This is where we step in to help protect them!

The River Bends Blue Run will be the first 5k that the PLEA Foundation has run and we are excited to have everyone join us.  Please come out and support law enforcement officers, they need it more now than ever.

Event details and schedule

Hello!  Thank you for looking into The PLEA Foundation's River Bends Blue Run 5k. The race will begin at 9:00 am on Saturday, May 7th 2016.  We will be available for day-of registration at 8 am at the Shelby River Bends Pavililon next to the entrance at 22 Mile Rd. and Shelby Rd.

The event will be ran on the River Bends paved path.  The event will be timed, so you will need to stop by the registration table to get all of the information that you will need.  BE SURE TO BRING YOUR STATE ID WITH YOU TO THE REGISTRATION.  There is a giant parking lot right next to the start of the trail, feel free to park anywhere you'd like.  We will be in the South East corner of the parking lot at a pavilion.

Feel free to wear whatever color's you'd like for the event, but PLEA's color's are Blue and Gold... Wear those colors to show support!

If you have any other questions, please feel free to call us at 248-588-8989 and we will answer your questions.
