K9-5K, Every dog has it’s day!
The K9-5K is dedicated to funding needs of the Racine County K9 Programs and “Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S)”
Your support is greatly appreciated.
Please help support Racine County K9 Units & C.O.P.S. All donations are split among participating departments UNLESS you indicate a specific request. Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives.
Over the past year, Milwaukee had 3 officers killed in the line of duty. Please help us support those that protect us every day.
SAVE YOUR CANS! Bring what you CAN to the K9-5K – Recently “Cans for K-9s” program handed $500 checks to five local agencies with K-9 units: the Racine, Caledonia, Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant police departments; and the Racine County Sheriff’s Office. The goal for this year is $5000. Let’s help them reach it!
Directions to start:
We will assemble at Cliffside Park, Located in Caledonia WI (Between Oak Creek and Racine – on the shore of Lake Michigan) Shelter Area #1.
