2007 C.O.P.S. Walk to Support the Families of America's Fallen LE Officers

September 19, 2007  | 

Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), a national non-profit headquartered in Camdenton, Mo., will hold its annual 25-mile fundraising C.O.P.S. Walk on October 19, 20, and 21, 2007.

The walk will start at the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, located along the north bank of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., and continue through Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland. Each participant has raised a minimum of $1,000 and almost all walkers are surviving family members of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Last year's walk raised more than $90,000.

C.O.P.S., organized in 1984, is dedicated to rebuilding shattered lives of law enforcement officers' surviving families. C.O.P.S. also promotes officer safety and public awareness of the dangers in the law enforcement profession and the sacrifices made by law enforcement families. C.O.P.S.' membership consists of nearly 15,000 surviving households nationwide. The funds raised support C.O.P.S.' programs including National Police Week, Parents Retreat, Spouses Retreat, Siblings Retreat, Siblings Retreat, In-Laws Retreat, Adult Children's Retreat, C.O.P.S. Kids Camp, C.O.P.S. Teens Outward Bound Experience, and scholarships for survivors that are awarded several times per year.
