EVENT: 18th Annual BEYOND THE BADGE 5K Run/Walk for Teams, Individuals, & Families! It’s a Time to Say Thanks!
Beyond the Badge is a 5K Run & Walk and a 1.5-mile Family Stroll for teams, individuals, & families. This event honors all of our public safety heroes and gives those attending an opportunity to thank those who serve today and the heroes who have paid the ultimate price to protect us. All proceeds will benefit the Jason M. Baker Public Safety Scholarships created in memory of Jason M. Baker, a Sheriff’s Deputy killed in the line of duty on September 17, 2001. These annual scholarships provide funds for students pursuing a degree and career in any field of Public Safety.
Beyond the Badge is a fun and festive 5K Run/Walk and Family Stroll with scenic routes throughout Crown Hill that include the beautiful Heroes of Public Safety memorial and section (pictured). The 5K route includes the beautiful rolling hills of Crown Hill, with a memorable trip to the top of “the Crown.” The 5K run is scored and prizes are awarded. (The 5K fitness walk and family stroll are not scored.) This event features water stops along both routes, refreshments following, drum corps, church service, roll call of fallen heroes, and other special events.
Beyond the Badge 5K encourages friendly Team competition, featuring Public Safety and Civilian divisions. The winning team in each division will receive a nice trophy and the fastest team members (up to 10) of the top three teams in each division will receive an award.
