This national event returned this year for the second time to Lehighton, PA to support our fallen brothers in blue, as well as their families who sacrifice peace of mind every day when their loved ones leave for work.
Thanks to DJ Layne “The Doc” Roberts and The Tavern Dogs Band, upbeat music filled the air as runners and walkers arrived, stretched, and warmed up. The music kept the crowd rocking throughout the event. Even with the unexpected bitter cold temps and swirling snow, runners still turned out for this important cause.
Post race, spectators and racers milled around the Community Day after-party. The volunteers and sponsors made the second annual Lehighton Officers Down 5K and even bigger hit than last year. Regional EMS & Critical Care is proud to have been a corporate sponsor.
It was a privilege to again have the opportunity to make this amazing race happen, and are truly touched by the outpouring of support the Officers Down Foundation and local law enforcement has received as a result.
