Peace Officers Association holding 'Run to Remember' event today

Provides assistance to families of law enforcement officers killed on duty

The California Peace Officers Association will hold its 6th annual Run to Remember starting at 7:30 a.m. today at Shadow Cliffs Regional Park.

Both the 10K Run and 5K Run/Walk courses are made up of small rolling-hill trails that run throughout Shadow Cliffs with a Kid's 1-mile run laid out through a portion of the park's lawn area.

The event honors first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) (California Chapter), a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to assist surviving family members and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed, according to Jonathan Lance, who is handling the event.

Trophies will go to the top 5K and 10K male and female finishers, with medals given three deep in designated age groups in the 5K and 10K runs for both male and female participants. Special awards will also be given to all children ages 12 and under who participate in the Kids' Fun Run.

The entry fee for the 10K or 5K Walk/Run is $40, and $25 for the Kids' run. The fee includes a commemorative T-shirt, beverages and a barbecue lunch catered by Outback Steakhouse, and a raffle.

Check-in and race-day registration will open at 7:30 a.m., with the 10K starting at 8:20 a.m. and the 5K at 9 a.m. The Kid's Mile will begin around 10:15 a.m. The post-race awards ceremony and barbeque are scheduled to start around 11 a.m.
