Event: COPS Walk Midwest

COPS Walk Midwest

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.
