On the night of 7 July 2016 I was side by side with DPD and DART officers to seek out and destroy evil. In doing so I witness acts of bravery, courage, selflessness, sacrifice... I witnessed citations that have been written for our combat veterans who earned medals such as the Silver Star w/ "V", the Navy Cross, and the Medal of Honor. My sisters and brothers in Blue will forever watch over our flock day and night without question or hesitation we are The Thin Blue Line between "order and chaos" between "evil and good." Isaiah 6:8 reads, And I heard the voice of Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, "Here I am! Send me." That night hundreds of Police Officers did just that they said "Here I am! Send me." Please help me in raising money for those family's who lost a loved one that night and for those injured answering the call of duty that night. Thank you and God Bless You.
On July 7, 2016, five police officers were killed and eight police officers were injured in the line of duty in a deliberate attack on the Dallas Police Department, Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police, and El Centro College Police Department.
Run For The Blue was founded in response to this attack to support fallen and injured officers and their families.
Funds donated to Run For The Blue events are collected and distributed by the Blue Guardian Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Donations of services and products to the events are welcomed so that contributions to the affected officers and families can be maximized.
In observance of the anniversary of the ambush, Run For The Blue Dallas will be held on July 6, 2019. In addition to a 5K and 1 Mile run / walk, ceremonies honoring fallen and injured officers will be held.
