Officer Collin Rose was killed in the line of duty on November 23rd 2016, and now we can help his amazing legacy carry on.

Richland, Michigan has a very special event set for July 4th 2017! it is The Rose Run 5K/10K is in honor of Officer Collin Rose...

"The year 2016 was an unforgettable year for the village of Richland and for the people of Kalamazoo, as well as all of us in Michigan. We lost one of our own while serving in the line of duty, Wayne State University Police Officer, Collin Rose. Collin, a 2006 graduate of Gull Lake High School, began his career with the Richland Village Police. In 2011, he joined the Wayne State University Police Department as a K-9 Officer. Collin, an avid supporter of causes involving fallen officers, rode in the Police Unity Tour where he proposed to his fiancée."

The run is a great way to give back to an officer who gave the greatest sacrifice, his life.

 "To continue Collin's mission to help others and make our world a better, safer place our July 4th race will be dedicated to his legacy and memory. All proceeds of our race will benefit the the groups that Collin was most passionate about."

Even if you are not a runner, you can walk the run. And if you don't feel like participating, it's always cool to have a crowd of supporters for the runners and the reason for this event.
