There is no limit on the amount of money needed to assist a down and out member. Having the support of Back the Blue 5K and the community eases the burden during these troubling times.
Joe Berg, President/State Delegate, Cape May County PBA Local 401
We had never held a Back the Blue 5k before, and it turned out to be an amazing experience. Best of all, the event enabled the Gardner Police K9 Unit to purchase a $2000 bite suit for training.

What is Back the Blue 5k?

Now more than ever, we need to strengthen the bonds of trust between our communities and local law enforcement. That’s our mission at Back the Blue 5K–an events organization founded by a former police officer who was injured in the line of duty. We partner with local supporters of our men and women in blue to put on a 5K race, with a share of the revenue going to a law enforcement agency or police-supported charity of their choosing. Contact us to organize a 5K where you live—and honor those neighbors among us who risk everything to protect and serve.
