We have chosen New Year’s Eve to remind us that police officers all over the country are working and not with their families. We honor them and all those that have worn the badge with respect and dignity by starting the New Year healthy, sober and safe. We remember that no matter how bad things are, there can be a new beginning.

All runners will receive a shirt that can be individualized if the form is received at least two (2) weeks prior the race day.

Many of our runners have an officer’s name on their back that holds a special meaning to them. If you have a team name, that too will be placed on the back.

The Top 5 teams and Top 5 individual runners that raise the most money will be acknowledged for their efforts.

All money raised will be distributed to COPLINE, Inc., a NATIONWIDE, PEER SUPPORTED, CONFIDENTIAL hotline for police officers.

COPLINE has received calls from all 50 states and Canada & continues to grow.

Why Do We Run?

We have chosen New Year’s Eve to remind us that police officers all over this country are working and not with their families. We honor them and all those that have worn the badge with honor and dignity by starting the New Year healthy, sober and safe. We remember that no matter how bad things are, there can be a new beginning. Vivian Eney Cross, Survivor said "It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived". Each officer on the back of the t-shirt was a hero to someone.

All runners receive a shirt that can be individualized if the form is received at least two weeks in advance. Many of our runners have an officer’s name on their back that holds a special meaning to them. If you have a team name that too will be placed on the back.

Fundraising for the hotline is greatly appreciated. The Top 5 teams and 5 top individual runners that raise the most money will be acknowledged that evening at the Point Pleasant Beach NJ Boardwalk where this year’s event starts and finishes. All sponsors at the patrolman level and above will have their logos on each shirt. Feel free to form a team or run as an individual. All money goes to Copline Inc. to fund trainings of peer listeners and software that is needed to support the lines. Copline is a 501(c)3 so all donations are tax deductible.

There will be a virtual run that will start at midnight in every time zone. We need you to spread the word to other LEO’s in this country. Last year we had dozens of runners in NJ and virtual participants on the elliptical machine, stationary bikes and treadmills in Florida, San Diego and Oklahoma. They can pick a specific location to start and finish or on equipment inside their Department. Our goal is to have someone from every department and field office in this county to have a participant in the Run for the Call.
