Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Every day those in law enforcement risk their lives to protect us. Care For Cops was established to assist families of Georgia law enforcement officers who are killed in the line of duty.

The 501 c(3) charity organization has provided direct financial assistance to more than 35 Georgia families, helping to provide immediate resources in times of great need, bridge the financial gap and acknowledge the sacrifices made by law enforcement officers in Georgia.

On November 3, the organization is hosting their First Annual Cops & Joggers 5K Run/Walk down Main Street in Historic Downtown Buford. The 5K will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Funds collected from participating runners, along with generous donations from corporate and individual sponsors, help Care For Cops continue to provide financial support to families of fallen Georgia law enforcement officers.

Early Registration is $25. Race Day registration is $30 and will begin at 7 a.m. You can also register online at www.Active.com, www.register.runnersfit.com or www.rungeorgia.com.
