Fundraising for the Run for the Badge

While fundraising isn't required to participate in the Run for the Badge, our goal is to raise $100,000 in support of our mission to honor the fallen, tell the story of American law enforcement, and make it safer for those who serve. Ask a few friends to chip in to support you! Fundraising continues until the end of October.

Why Participate?
