2nd Annual Kansas Law Enforcement - Run to Remember
Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM (CDT)
Come and be a part of the 2nd Annual Kansas Law Enforcement - Run to Remember 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run supporting our heroes and honoring our fallen! This event will honor those law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice and given their lives protecting and serving and to support the families they have left behind. Put together a team in memory of a fallen officer, support an agency, or register as an individual. This will be a day for everyone to pay tribute and remember. This year the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary has choosen Easter Seals Capper Foundation, a national FOP and Auxiliary philanthropy, as their recipient organization. Proceeds from the event will benefit both the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary, Topeka #3 and the Easter Seals Capper Foundation. Easter Seals Capper Foundation is a local organization focused on providing individualized services to ensure that people with disabilities and their families have opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
Both courses will start and finish at Lake Shawnee Shelter House #4. Runners will start in the front and the course will run south along the beautiful hills at Lake Shawnee for a scenic yet challenging 5K course. The 5K walkers will start the race at the rear of the runners and will complete the same course. For those looking for a less challenging course, we will offer a one mile Fun Run that will encompass Tinman Circle beginning and ending at the Shelter House.

When & Where
Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary, Topeka #3
Recently named the 2013 National Auxiliary of the Year, the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary, Topeka Lodge #3 has been supporting and uniting law enforcement families in Shawnee County for the past 26 years. The Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary prides itself in allowing members the opportunity to volunteer and give back as well as give and receive support in times of need. Our goal is to establish a network of support and camaraderie and to enrich the bond that is shared between members through philanthropy and fraternalism. Over the years, the FOP Auxiliary has not only supported our fellow law enforcement families, we have also helped many local charities such as Special Olympics Kansas and the United Way Christmas Bureau. This year we will be hosting the Kansas Law Enforcement Run to Remember 5K to raise awareness of fallen officers across our state and to support the families left behind.
