The Texarkana Arkansas Police Association is going to have a "Back The Blue 5K Fun Run"  Saturday, April 9 from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM.

The money raised will go towards several different charities and events that the police are involved in locally including the Shop with a Cop program.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Association set up an Eventbrite page where you can register for the Fun Run. The event is open to the public and the Texarkana, Ar. Police are encouraging area schools to get involved as well:

The school with the most participants will be recognized by the Chief of Police, as well as the Texarkana, Arkansas Police Association president with a plaque.  There will also be a very large trophy with the schools attendance number and year displayed in front of the administration office at the police department. Each participant will also receive a participation medal.

You can also get more information at their Facebook page. Let's help Back the Blue in our area!!
