Community turns out for 5K run to support Lodi police officers

Approximately 150 runners and walkers came out to show their support for local law enforcement early Saturday morning at Calturas Winery and Brewery in Lodi.

 

Adults and children, several local mascots and a group of law enforcement officers — running in full uniform and gear — completed the 5K race under a clear blue sky.

The race and event raised funds for the Lodi Police Foundation, which this year will use the money to replace old helmets in the department.

 

Organizers were mum Tuesday about how much was raised. Curious minds will have to wait to find out until November.

“We will not reveal the amount until the unveiling at the city council meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 1, when we present the money raised to the Lodi Police Foundation,” said June Aaker, of Lodi Citizens in Action.

 

Kristen Millard, founder of Blue Angel of Hope, and her son were busy after the event handing out bracelets to members of the Discovery Challenge Academy.
