To Benefit: DeLisle K-9 Officer Safety Foundation
About this Virtual Run:Police Officers wear ballistic vests as part of their daily uniform, however, the K-9s who are putting themselves between the Officer and an armed suspect are often not provided the same protection. 100% of the funds raised are used to purchase K-9 ballistic vests to provide protection against guns and knives when the K-9s are used to help track and apprehend armed suspects, and to purchase opioid reversal kits for narcotics K-9s who may be exposed to inhaled or ingest drugs. They donate these items to any Police Department in need, across the USA.
Run or walk in the “Paws for the Law” virtual race to support DeLisle K-9 Officer Safety Foundation. All participants will receive this adorable K-9 Officer medal featuring attached badge and handcuff charms!
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 26 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.
