To Benefit: DeLisle K-9 Officer Safety Foundation
About this Virtual Run: Paws for the Law is back for it’s 4th consecutive year, and this year’s medal is a special “Thank You!” to Law Enforcement Officers everywhere.
Police Officers wear ballistic vests as part of their daily uniform, however, the K-9s who are putting themselves between officers and an armed suspects are often not provided the same protection. 100% of the funds raised from this event will be used to purchase:
- -K-9 ballistic vests that provide protection against guns and knives for K-9s who are used to help track and apprehend armed suspects
- -Opioid reversal kits for narcotics K-9s who may be exposed to inhaled or ingest drugs.
These items are donated to Police Departments in need anywhere in the USA.
About the Charity: The DeLisle K-9 Officer Safety Foundation began raising funds for K-9 Officer ballistic vests in the fall of 2016 after hearing of a K-9 shot and killed in the line of duty. These vests cost an average of $1,200 each and are usually not included in police department budgets. Since that time they have become a 501(c)3 and have raised enough funds to purchase 31 bulletproof K-9 vests, helping to protect K-9’s throughout Delaware and across the country. Each vest purchased helps to protect the K-9, which in turn protects our dedicated Police Officers!
Virtual Strides Partner Event: This event is part of the Virtual Strides Partners Program. The DeLisle K-9 Officer Safety Foundation will receive 100% of the net proceeds from this event after Virtual Strides’ partner costs are deducted.
