Have plans for Saturday 04/29/17? Join us for Patrol Borough Brooklyn North’s 5K run!
Did you know that out of the 40,000 police officers in New York City, it’s estimated that over 10% have a child with special needs?
As the people responsible for serving and protecting our communities, our men and women in blue take their jobs very seriously. In addition to the everyday stresses of making sure our city is safe, those who are parents of special needs children have to deal with emotional, physical and financial challenges as well.
Let’s show them the appreciation they deserve!
Come out Saturday April 29th and walk, run, or wheel yourself to the finish line with us in honor of New York’s finest. 100% of the proceeds for this event will be donated to NYPD C.A.R.E.S. and With Arms Wide Open, two organizations that help build platforms to support and empower the families of special needs children in the NYPD community.
Date: Saturday 04/29/17

Step Off: 10am EST
Location: Cadman Plaza Park Brooklyn

What a weekend! Thank you to all who came out to show their support for the NYPD and their families.
With a turnout of 1400+ people, the run was a major success raising over $50,000!!! Our men and women in blue risk their lives every single day to keep our communities safe, so we’re glad we got the chance to show our appreciation.
Special shoutout to Edgar, Kevin, Idelfonso, Diego and Diego Jr. for participating in the run!
