Our first HEROES 5K/10K Memorial Run was Friday, April 1, 2016
We netted in excess of $20k when over 600 participants met at Demens Landing in St. Petersburg, FL on Friday, April 1 to show support for the Heroes of the St. Petersburg Police by Walking, 10K, 1 Mile, 1K, 5K and Beginner Levels! Mayor Kriseman and Chief Holloway were honorary Co-Chairs for the event.
The mission of the Heroes of the St. Pete Police, Inc. is to honor St. Petersburg Police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty and to provide financial support to assist officers and their families during a crisis or tragedy.
There have been 15 officers down in the line of duty from the St. Pete Police force. We are working to honor them with a monument to show appreciation to the officers’ dedication and the establishment of a fund to support officers and their families.
