The Annual Fallen Heroes Memorial 5K run generates funds which enable our foundation to continue its exclusive purpose to meaningfully serve the past, present and future members of the Lakeland Police Department. With Foundation dollars, we will continue to support the many programs of the foundation to include providing education grants, financial assistance to our members suffering extreme hardships, assisting our retired police canines, supporting the Police Explorer Program, and maintaining the Fallen Heroes Memorial that was built to honor our seven Lakeland Police fallen officers.
