Joining in a nationwide effort to unite communities and recognize the dedication and sacrifices of law enforcement, the Cedaredge Police Department (CPD) will host a "Back the Blue" 5k run/walk on Saturday, Nov. 17.
Registration is ongoing for the 5k race which starts at 9 a.m. at the Lions Pavilion in Cedaredge town park. A one-mile fun run kicks off next at 9:45 a.m. and community activities will follow. To register visit the Back the Blue website and select the Cedaredge event: www.backtheblue5k.com
The cost to enter the full five-kilometer race is $45 and registration includes a T-shirt, a medal, and other gear and benefits. The one-mile fun run entry fee is $25 and registration includes a T-shirt. Kids 12 and under can participate for free but if they want to earn a T-shirt and a medal, the cost is $20. A special "virtual" category is available for those who are unable to take part in the race but still wish to support the CPD. Registration for the virtual event is $45 which includes all the memorabilia and benefits associated with regular registration.
Money raised by the event will help the CPD purchase needed equipment and provide community programs.
