Big Thank you to our Law Enforcement and our Community!
We want to express how grateful we are to serve and be a part of such an amazing community. What started out as a small little gathering amongst friends, turned into an amazing showing of support to our Law Enforcement, local and abroad.
When we started this event, we were hoping to sell enough tickets to cover expenses and donate a couple hundred dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. With your help, we were able to surpass that exponentially, with over 100 participants and a final donation totaling over $2000!
This showed us not only the outpouring of support for our LEO’s, but also an opportunity to repeat the event next year. As you know, this was our first event and with only a little over a month’s notice, you were able to make a difference. We are excited to make this an annual event for the Carson Valley and continue to be an avenue for the men in blue, who sacrifice so much to serve us and answer the call when we need them.
This is a sensitive time in our society to be outspoken in support of our law enforcement, but it is necessary to show them that we stand behind them, and Run for the Badge was an excellent showing of support.
We would love to get your feedback on the event, and on ways we can improve and make this great for next year. Also, you can find any other charity events that we plan to host in the future by following CrossFit Ampersand on Facebook.
We would like to thank all of our volunteers, participants, and the following local businesses for donating raffle prizes and being a part of Run for the Badge:
