Deputies to join national 5K
The Falls County Sheriff’s Office has decided to participate in the National Run for the Badge 5K, taking place virtually this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Each year, Run for the Badge is held in Washington D.C. to fundraise for the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum.
The goal for the national project is to fundraise $100,000, with donations coming from those supporting their runners.
With the virtual 5K, runners can participate anywhere in the country.
The event will be on Oct. 10, with representatives from the Falls County Sheriff Office running in honor of Matt Jones, who was fatally injured during a traffic accident about a year ago.
They are inviting members of the community to run and/or walk with them for support. To participate, call (254) 883-1000 or send the department a message on Facebook.
There are also options to donate to the cause outright, on a team’s behalf, or to donate to a team. For more information, please contact the Falls county Sheriff Department on Facebook
