The K9-5K is dedicated to funding needs of the Racine County K9 Programs and "Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S)"

Your support is greatly appreciated. 


SAVE YOUR CANS! Bring what you CAN to the K9-5K - Recently "Cans for K-9s" program handed $500 checks to five local agencies with K-9 units: the Racine, Caledonia, Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant police departments; and the Racine County Sheriff’s Office. The goal for this year is $5000. Let's help them reach it! LEARN MORE

Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)

Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss.  C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives.
