2018 5K Hero Run
The Swatara Township Police Department is preparing for our 6th Annual 5K Hero Run/Walk. We are seeking sponsors for the event and are reaching out to local businesses and asking for their support. In 2017, we had over 720 registered participants and we anticipate at least 800 participants in 2018! The 6th Annual 5K Hero Run will be held Sunday, November 4, 2018 at the Harrisburg Mall, (3501 Paxton Street Harrisburg, PA 17111) from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Proceeds from this 5K event go towards the Keystone Wounded Warriors, which aids veterans living in or with ties to Pennsylvania, Cops for K.O.P.S, which aids children left behind by fallen police officers within the state of Pennsylvania, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation which aids families of firefighters killed in the line of duty, as well as the Swatara Township Police Department’s K-9 Fund, which supports the departments newly re-established K-9 program.
Participants are encouraged to support their hero by coming dressed in their favorite hero’s outfit whether it is a member of the Armed Services, Police, Fire, EMS, Superhero or whomever their hero is. This 5K Race Run is great for getting exercise and meeting others who are out supporting their heroes while at the same time supporting our community.
