Get Busted Having Fun
In partnership with the Law Enforcement Torch Run, Run With The Cops had a great year in 2018 by surpassing the fundraising goal by $126,841! Let’s make 2019 top that! All proceeds support the athletes of Special Olympics Wisconsin. Be sure to check out all the cool incentives you can earn as you fundraise!
“My favorite thing about Run With The Cops is seeing everyone come together and have some fun. The best though has to be seeing the faces of the athletes and kids that come to the event. They all look up to the officers and the joy on their faces when they get to run with a cop, challenge one of us to a doughnut-eating competition, or look at all the squad cars with us is priceless.” – Ryan Miller, volunteer for UW-River Falls Run with the Cops

You’ll glow from head-to-toe!
A night run wouldn’t be complete without glow goodies! Stop at the glow stations along the course and get decked out in necklaces, bracelets and blue and red lights. Check your speed on the radar trailer as you cross the police-taped finish line. Then, relax with coffee and donuts while you snap selfies in the “jail cell”.

What’s a virtual race? It’s a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. Down your neighborhood road, on a treadmill or on a local trail. The choice is yours while still supporting Special Olympics Wisconsin! You run your race, at your own pace. The virtual race package includes a medal, race bib, t-shirt and glow item will be shipped directly to your doorstep. Need some music to help you out, check out this playlist that includes some of the greatest cop songs of all time!
Once registered online for any of the options, you’ll have a personal fundraising page you can share with family and friends with email or Facebook. You can raise funds to cover your registration fee, but why stop there? Continue to fundraise and push to meet incentives.
On average, to support one athlete for one year is $552. Just think of the impact we could make if every team supported an athlete. Challenge each other, have fun and change lives right here in Wisconsin!
“I think they are a great ally and friend to Special Olympics Wisconsin,” Alex said. “Law enforcement represent safety and a great deal of public authority, respect, and they always bring an entourage to support our events in SOWI.” – Alex Guild, Special Olympics athlete
