Badge Of Honor Benefit Run Inc.
I would like to thank everyone for participating in the 2017 Badge of Honor Benefit Run. The weather wasn’t what I hoped for, but it was good running weather. The changing of the event location posed some unique challenges for us this year, but we hope to have those resolved for next year. We had 162 registered with 135 participating on the day of the event. Again, this event would not have been possible without the financial support of our sponsors. I hope everyone enjoyed the event and hope to see you in 2018.
The planning process for the 2018 Badge of Honor Benefit Run (BOHBR) has begun.

The Badge of Honor Benefit Run is an event to honor the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve the citizens of their communities. Proceeds of the monies raised from this event will be distributed among three distinguished law enforcement support groups, dedicated to assisting police officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical personnel. The MASTERS is a non-profit organization designed to assist the families of Missouri State Troopers who have given their lives in the line of duty. Similar to The MASTERS, The BackStoppers provides needed support and financial assistance to the spouses and children of all local and county police officers, firefighters, publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs and volunteer fire protection units, who have lost their lives performing their duty. The Missouri Fraternal Order of Police is dedicated to improving the working conditions of police officers so they are able to provide quality law enforcement services to the communities they have sworn to protect. The proceeds from this event will also be used to help the Local Missouri Fraternal Order of Police fund community programs like the Annual Shop with a Hero Program, where law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical personnel shop with children to purchase Christmas gifts during the holiday season.
