Raleigh, NC – Celebrating its 5th year, the Run for our Heroes 5K is dedicated to the memory of Raleigh Police Officers who have died in the line of duty. The race is one of several local events held throughout the year that commemorate the lives of Raleigh’s fallen heroes.
A portion of proceeds from each is donated to the Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation. The Foundation serves many needs, including providing financial support and assistance to the families of Raleigh police officers who have been killed or seriously injured while serving the community.
As for the Run for the Heroes 5K itself, the day kicks off with a memorial service to celebrate the lives of those officer who have passed; that is followed immediately by the 5k. Next up is the McGruff Crime Dog Kids Race, which is scheduled for 10 am.
Stick around after the race for food and a chance to win raffle prizes at Napper Tandy’s on 120 N. West St. in Raleigh. The post-race party lasts from 11 am until 1 pm. Lunch is on the house for race participants and race volunteers. For all others, the cover charge is $5.

5K starts at 9 am
