On Nov. 17, the Cedaredge Police Department partnered with Blue Lives Matter to host a fun-filled day supporting local law enforcement.

The event included a Back the Blue 5k race/walk, which drew 65 registrants. The race was followed by a one-mile fun run and community activities.

The fundraiser generated over $2,000 for the Cedaredge Police Department. The money will be used to purchase equipment needed by the department and for programs offered by the CPD.

Chief Dan Sanders expressed his appreciation to Blue Lives Matter BTB 5K, Cedaredge Officer Carlos Lovera, Officer Davis, K9 Tigger, and his human chew toy (Scott Lock, Town of Cedaredge Public Works). Pryce Hoey, driver for Rally North America Team RAWRRR, and his entire crew represented fallen officers and survivors of the fallen. A black, blue line-wrapped car and COPS (Concerns of Police Survivors) booth highlighted resources provided to the families of officers killed in the line of duty.

Last but not least, Chief Sanders voiced his thanks to all of the hard working volunteers and local sponsors -- Coaltrain Coffee House in Hotchkiss, Delta County Memorial Hospital, the Cedar Point Health team, 1440 Shirt Company, DMEA/Elevate, Alpine Bank and Double J Disposal.

"We look forward to having similar events in the future," Chief Sanders said.
