This will our second Sneakers & Sirens Run and we’re looking forward to growing it like crazy! We’ve partnered with the City of Mukilteo once again to present this run/walk event benefiting Special Olympics of WA and Safe Call Now, a local charity supporting first responders in crisis. Our law enforcement community is a strong supporter of Special Olympics of WA which does important work changing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through sports, health, education and community building. And because I think it’s important to recognize that our law enforcement and first responders also deserve strong support this event will also benefit Safe Call Now. They offer a confidential, comprehensive, 24 hour crisis referral service for public safety employees and all emergency services personnel and their families nationwide. These are the people that run towards a crisis while the rest of us run for safety. Having a safe place to talk to people that understand the specific challenges of their work is invaluable. They’ve earned our help.
One hundred percent of the profits from this run will benefit the organizations indicated, but it takes money to put on events and that’s where I’m counting on you. Your sponsorship check will help purchase the items needed to produce a safe, well organized event for our runners with the goal of having all runner registration dollars go to the event charities. If you would like your sponsorship check earmarked for a specific item like insurance, food, safety items or medals please indicate that on your payment. I'm looking forward to working with you!
