Run For the Badge 5K Was a Success

Nearly $100,000 Raised!

RFTB 2019

Hundreds of runners lined up on F Street NW in Washington, DC, on October 12 as part of the annual Run for the Badge 5K to benefit the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum. The timed course ran through downtown DC before finishing in front of the Museum, where runners were met with music, prizes and badge-shaped finishers medals!

Participants and fundraisers helped us raise nearly $100,000 in honor of law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty. The race is a great chance to show support for the law enforcement community and the Memorial. If you’re interested in running next year, registration will open before the end of 2019.
