Three years ago, the Tempe Police Department in partnership with The Tempe Police Foundation – a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization – designed an interactive, lighthearted and healthy family athletic event to bring together Tempe police employees and members of the community in a charitable 5K run known as the “Run From The Cops”.
Since its inception, the event has gained in its popularity as a fun way for the Tempe community to connect with the police officers who are sworn to protect and serve them.
The event benefits the Tempe Police Foundation whose programs have helped to assist the Tempe Police Department’s K9 Unit and the families of fallen or injured Tempe Police Officers in times of need, provided for emergency travel and lodging expenses of crime victims and their families, sponsored the annual ‘Holiday Shop with a Cop’ event benefiting the children of low-income families, supported diversity workshops, and sponsored trainings to assist officers with interacting with various segments of our community.
Out of sensitivity, respect, and support for all sides of an important debate taking place all across our great country, it is necessary to proactively postpone this year’s race.
Your continued support, understanding, and patience is greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Your registration fee will be refunded. Additional information regarding the process will be forthcoming in the near future.
