Paws for the Law
We believe it is just as important to protect our K-9 Officers as it is our human Officers. Police Officers wear protective vests daily and, when needed, K-9 Officers are sent in to situations to protect or save Officers from suspects with weapons – many of whom do not have stab-proof/bullet-proof vests. 100% of the funds we raise go toward purchasing much needed vests for Police K-9s from any Police Department in need! 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 4″ K-9 Officer medal with a hanging dog tag charm.
The DeLisle K-9 Officer Safety Foundation began by raising funds to purchase one vest for their local Police K-9 Unit. The response was so amazing, they formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. To date, they have purchased four vests, costing about $1,200 each, and have donated towards a more expensive 5th vest. Each vest donated helps to protect both the K-9 Officer AND their Officer handler!
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.
