5K for the Fallen was founded in 2018 as a non-profit event, and now 501(c)(3) organization, to support family-friendly events that honor the Thin Blue Line, and the sacrifices of the Law Enforcement profession. Our goal is to celebrate the heroism of Police Officer’s and their families, especially when the ultimate sacrifice has been made. Additionally, we hope to foster community support and appreciation for local law enforcement agencies.
The 5K events that we support are always family-friendly. And while there is likely to be some friendly competition – and yes, awards! – every 5K skill level is welcome. Crawl, walk, skip, run, stroll, hop … the choice is yours! In Orting, our race trail consists of both paved and gravel paths, as well as some trail-like terrain. It’s a beautiful trek originating near the Orting Police Department, turning along and following the Carbon River, and winding through a residential area to the finish line in the City Park.
We’d love to meet you and your family, and look forward to your participation!
Since 2009, over a thousand firefighters from across the country and around the world have raised over $1.5 million in the fight against cystic fibrosis through the Portland Firefighter Stairclimb. Let’s make “CF” stand for “Cure Found!”
How to participate this year? Register to Participate Virtually. While we can’t be together in person, we can be together in spirit and show the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis. There will be no registration fee this year.
