Police Honor Guard 5k

5th Anniversary Columbus Division of Police Honor Guard 5K Memorial Run

, ,

5K Memorial Race dedicated to the Fallen Police Officers of The Columbus Division of Police and surrounding Central Ohio areas and their families. This 5K race is made possible by the 501(c)3 non-profit organization Columbus Division of Police Honor Guard and amazing participants like you. If you would like to support our event and these families, but do not want to run, please feel free to donate here or be a part of our new virtual run this year! Your contribution will help to change a Fallen Officer’s Families lives.

The Columbus Police Honor Guard is a 501(C)3 charitable organization composed completely of volunteer Columbus Police Officers and Command Staff whose primary mission is to participate at funeral services for active, retired, and reserve officers, as well as active and retired civilian police personnel. These special men and women also act as representatives of the Division of Police in various community events. The Honor Guard is primarily SELF-FUNDED, and relies on very limited public funds for its maintenance and operation. For instance: their specialty uniforms, ceremonial equipment, transportation, and upkeep on the Police Memorial at Genoa Park, etc.

The 5K Memorial Run is a fundraising event to benefit the Columbus Police Honor Guard. The effort you are so graciously considering to give will help our organization to fund the expenses of the 5K Memorial Race. Proceeds from the race are then used to fund funeral services for the above-mentioned deceased officers. We are then a helping hand for the fallen hero’s surviving family as they begin to learn to cope with the loss of their officer. These services are provided by the Columbus Division of Police Honor Guard for fallen police officers in Columbus and other agencies we assist in Ohio.

Proceeds from the race will help to replenish funds to the Columbus Police Honor Guard so that they can continue to serve those most in need of their organization’s help.
