Run From the Cops 5K
Calling all runners. Our suburban brethren are looking to assist the dwindling ranks of World War II veterans to Washington DC so that they are able to see the monument built to honor their service:

- Love the site. A CPD officer suggested I e-mail the details of the Vernon Hills PD 'Run From the Cops' 5K since you have the voice to really put it out there. We are 100% charitable and 100% run by cops. This year, we are benefiting Honor Flight Chicago and looking to send as many WWII vets to D.C. as possible. The race is taking place on Sunday July 21, 2013 at 8:00 AM here in Vernon Hills and it is run in conjunction with our town carnival. For our event the participating officers actually line up at the back of the crowd to symbolically at least chase the other runners. We offer a discounted rate to all police officers when registering online with the code POLICE2013 ($20 instead of $30). Registration and additional info can be found online at www.runfromthecops5k.com.
