Run for the Blue 5K

If you're looking for another way to support law enforcement, consider participating in the Run for the Blue 5K taking place this September in Clayton County, GA.

The Run for the Blue 5K is being organized and spear-headed by the family of  Mackenna Gosart, the 14-year old cross country runner who logged 118 miles this past January to honor each of the officers killed in the line of duty in the United States in 2014. 

As did her run in January, the Run for the Blue 5K this fall will support our friends at the Armor of God Project, a non-profit organization that provides tactical and ballistic vests to officers who are not issued them by their agencies and often cannot afford the expensive purchase on their own.  Mackenna already raised over $11,000 for Armor of God during her inspiration 118-mile month in January, and she's looking to continue her good work with this 5K in September.  Learn more about the Armor of God project here.

The Run for the Blue 5K also has a virtual option, so even if you're not in Georgia, you can register as a Ghost Runner and support this important cause from anywhere.
