9th Annual Run to Remember – Phoenix, AZ

Arizona Concerns of Police Survivors
9th Annual Run to Remember – Phoenix, AZ


We finally had the chance to attend and participate in the annual Run to Remember held in Phoenix, AZ.  Had planned to only participate, but they were in need a photographer.  Hard to believe that I had a camera in the trunk, so I was able to assist in coverage as well.  Not like I mind at all helping out a great organization and greater cause. 



“Their radios may be silent, but the memories of Arizona’s officers killed in the line of duty live on.
Sunday, March 3, those memories were honored at the 9th annual “Run to Remember,” a 5K family-friendly run in Downtown Phoenix coordinated by Arizona Concerns of Police Survivors in cooperation with the Peace Officer Memorial Board.
All proceeds from the run/walk benefited the families of fallen officers.”



 Arizona Concerns of Police Survivors
Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by Federal criteria. Furthermore, C.O.P.S. provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.





Arizona Peace Officers Memorial – Phoenix, AZ
Every year, on the first Monday in May, the Arizona Peace Officers Memorial Board honors the officers that have made the ultimate sacrifice and their families.  The weekend prior to the Arizona Peace Officers Memorial Service, the Board also hosts the Annual Peace Officers Memorial Charity Golf Tournament and the Annual Peace Officers Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run.  All proceeds of the event will assist with the annual Arizona Peace Officers Memorial Service. Every year the Arizona Peace Officers Memorial Board recognizes those officers that have made the “ultimate sacrifice”. The service allows current and past years survivors a time to join together to honor their fallen heroes.
