November 6, 2019 – The fifth annual “Run with the Cops” will be held Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Santa Fe College track on SF’s Northwest Campus, 3000 NW 83rd Street in Gainesville.
It will be a morning of fun and fitness open to the entire community. The annual event supports those in our area with special needs. Participants can run, walk or roll along the track with law enforcement officers from area agencies. They can get an up-close look at police and fire rescue vehicles, learn important safety tips, and have the opportunity to meet and interact with the members of law enforcement who protect and serve our community. There will be many displays and giveaways, and all activities are free.
SFPD Police Chief Ed Book says the event allows the community to see police as allies, not adversaries, all done to promote safety, security, health and wellness at Santa Fe College.
Publix and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be on hand as well helping participants fuel up before they get moving. The event is also sponsored in part by Kiss 105.3, Hurricane BTW, the Santa Fe College Foundation and Alachua 10-42, an organization dedicated to being a positive and supportive voice for local law enforcement and their families.
