About the Race
The Williamson County F.O.P. Lodge 197 is a non-profit organization geared towards the raising of money to benefit several charity services that we offer each year. Their programs include:
Cops and Kids: A program that enables hundreds of children to have a Christmas that they would not otherwise have. This program supports positive Police and Community interaction. In the last six years, we have been able to help hundreds of children and have spent in excess of $60,000.
Scholarships: The Lodge supports several scholastic programs that are offered to local students and also contributes sponsoring funds to various youth sports summer programs.
Death Benefit Account: While this is a cause we hope we don’t have to draw from, the death benefit account helps the families of officers who have passed away while on duty.
We are very excited to be teaming up again with Back the Blue 5K to be able to bring an amazing event back to Illinois. Back the Blue 5K is a run/walk where community members can run or walk along with their law enforcement. Following the race there will be community building activities.
All Fraternal members are Law Enforcement officers who work and live within Williamson County.
