About Our Event:
Sadly- there are thousands of children in Tarrant County, Texas that are in Relative Placements, Foster Homes, Residential Treatment Centers, Group Homes, Emergency Shelters, and/or otherwise displaced. These children are the victims of one or many things- physical abuse, sexual abuse, crippling emotional abuse, neglect, and then some.
The Police Departments listed below have joined with Community Partners of Tarrant County 501(c)(3) (CPTC)* to meet additional needs that children within Child Protective Services may benefit from.
Proceeds from this event take care of many little things that might make the lives of abused & neglected children within our community a little more ‘normal.’
Some examples include:
-High School Graduation Expenses
-Recreational activities (swim lessons, athletics, music lessons, etc.)
-Clothing, diapers, lice kits, specialty formula, shoes, etc.
-Sibling visitations, basic prom expenses, other special events
-The list goes on- and fluctuates based on need.
Police Departments are hosting the 31st Virtual 5K:
-Arlington Police Department
-Tarrant County Sheriff's Office
-North Richland Hills Police Department
-UT Arlington Police Department
-Tarrant County College Police Department
-Hurst Police Department
