COPSWALK Midwest will bring together survivors, friends and members of the law enforcement community who are willing to take on the challenge of walking 25 miles in 2 days to fund-raiser for C.O.P.S.’ Hands-On Programs. These programs allow C.O.P.S. to host camps for fallen officers’ kids, and retreats for spouses, siblings, parents, and other survivors.
The walk is designed to provide participants with a physical challenge as well as the opportunity to spend time with survivors, law enforcement officers and friends walking in memory of loved ones or co-workers. This walk is not timed; it is not a race.
This two-day, 25 mile walk will be along the Fox River Trail between the towns of Aurora and Elgin taking in quaint waterfront villages, towns, and parks along the way. This paved rail-trail follows along both sides of the Fox River tracking back and forth over various bridges and river-ways of the Kane County Forest Preserve.
If you have any questions about participating or volunteering, please contact Lori Matthes, Development Coordinator, at (573) 346-4911.
