The Texarkana, Arkansas Police Association is hosting a "Back the Blue 5K Fun Run" Saturday, at Front Street Plaza as one of its yearly fundraisers.

This fundraising event is to raise money in support of several events such as the Sam Tirrito memorial scholarship, cops and kids Christmas dinner, shop with a cop, and others. The fundraiser is for anyone interested in participating.

With this fundraiser, they are asking that all area schools accept the challenge and see which school can get the most students to participate. The school with the most participants will be recognized by the chief of police, as well as the 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 for this event. Your help is needed in making this fundraiser a great success and they hope to see you there.

You can get signed up here.
