5K Hero Run a Success

On behalf of the Swatara Township Police Department we would like to thank everyone who registered and/or came out to yesterday’s 6th Annual 5K Hero Run.  This year we had a total of 677 registered participants. 

Although we are still waiting for some of the funds to come in, this year’s event raised over $11,000.  This money will be going towards our department’s K-9 Unit as well as the K.O.P.S for Cops, Keystone Wounded Warriors and the National Fallen Firefighter’s Foundation charities. 

We would like to take the time to thank the following business’ for their donations and sponsorships of this event:  Jacobs Service Company, Blue Chip Federal Credit Union, Red Door Consignment, Stephenson Equipment, Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites of Harrisburg East, Mid Penn Bank, Atlantic Tactical, Cumberland Electronics, Paxtang Grill, Friendship Fire Company of Bressler Ladies Auxiliary, Bath Fitter, Derry Tire and Auto, Faulkner Mazda, Cleveland Brothers Equipment Company, Belco Community Credit Union, Faulkner Infinity of Mechanicsburg, Lawnton American Legion Post 998, Orrstown Bank, Target of High Pointe Commons, Wal-Mart of Harrisburg, Feesers Food Distributors, Classic Dry Cleaners and Mission BBQ. We simply could not have had this event without you. 

We also want to thank all of the Fire Police, Fire fighters and volunteers who came out to assist with this event!  Your time and effort was greatly appreciated.  This event was a lot of fun for our officers and it was wonderful to see so many people out at the Harrisburg Mall just enjoying the beautiful weather and each other’s company while getting a little exercise in at the same time. 

Additional photos from the event can be viewed on the Swatara Township Police Department Facebook Page and check out the results below! From all of us here at the Swatara Police Department, thank you and we hope to see you out at next year’s race!
