Colonie Police Want You to Run With Them, Not Away from Them!
This weekend, the men and women of the Colonie Police force are asking you to run with them, not away from them!
I think many of you would agree that this is a reasonable request considering how well trained they are in the art of hot pursuit.
On Sunday, the men and women of the area's largest police force will be leaving the badge and uniform at home, opting instead for shorts and sneakers.
It's a way for the Colonie Police to give back to the area they serve with their annual Cops for Kids Family 5K and Kids Fun Run, and all the details and registration information are below!
The feel-good event takes place this Sunday, June 5th at The Crossings in Colonie and the money goes to their DARE program. The day starts with a 9:45 am Kids Fun Run happening right before the Family 5K which is slated to start at 10 am on Sunday.
The Kids Fun Run is free for all kids 13-years-old and younger, while the Family 5K is only $25 per person. Following the Family 5K, there will be an award presentation after the 5K is complete for the top male and female runners of the day.
To be a part of either run, pre-registration is required. You may register online now, or on Sunday morning before 930. Click here for more information, or to register for either of the two races.
