On Sunday, 19 October 2008 law enforcement officers, family members, friends and other supporters will participate in the inaugural 5K "Race to Remember" to benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and the campaign to build the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum.
Every day, law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for our safety and protection. Organized by the DC Metropolitan Police Department, this inaugural 5K "Race to Remember" is a chance to show your appreciation for the service and sacrifice of law enforcement - and enjoy a running course that takes you past some of the pillars of democracy in the Nation's Capital.
Starting at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC's historic Judiciary Square, runners will race the streets of our Nation's Capital, passing some of our country's most recognizable and cherished landmarks, including the U.S. Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the National Mall and various Smithsonian institutions.
AwardsA variety of prizes, including unique law enforcement-related merchandise, will be awarded to the top three men's and women's runners overall, as well as the top two runners (men and women) in standard 10-year age categories.
At a fee of $25, online registration closes at 6 pm on Thursday, 16 October 2008.
