Cleveland Officers Down 5k Run

By: Keyona Balfour Intern

Positive Movementz will host the Cleveland Officers Down 5K Run on Sunday November 17, 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio. The Officers Down 5K is an annual event representing and celebrating officers who have fallen protecting our communities, as well as the officers who serve us daily. Positive Movementz decided to expand the Officers Down 5K to Cleveland, Ohio.

This event will be held at the Police Memorial located at Lakeside Avenue and 3rd Street. Runners from all over are encouraged to participate in this event, not just those from Cleveland. Staging location is at Cleveland Police Headquarters, 1300 Ontario Street.

CLEVELAND Officers Down 5K will benefit ODMP, Officer Down Memorial Page. ODMP mission is to honor America’s fallen law enforcement heroes.

Wounded Officer Project (WOP) was also added and will benefit wounded officers from chosen cities. The beneficiary this year is Officer Thomas Erin. Middlefield Police Officer Thomas Erin and his partner Brandon Savage was wounded in a shooting on March 2013. Officer Savage has returned to work, but Officer Erin is still on injury leave.
