The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Department Benevolent Association presents the second annual Run with the Fuzz 5K and Children's 1 mile fun run. The race is set for October 4, 2014 at Berwick High School in Berwick, LA. The children take the course for a one mile fun run at 8:00 am. The 5K begins following the children’s race.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Department Benevolent Association was established in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew struck the parish. Many employees of the St. Mary Parish Sheriff Office were in need of aid. Employees, neighboring departments, and communities came together to answer that call for help and raised the needed funds. The association was born from the idea of helping each other in times of emergencies or disasters. Proceeds from the Run with the Fuzz will help the benevolent association continue that mission.
Run with the Fuzz participants do not have to run. Walkers are welcome. Parents are encouraged to sign kids up for the one mile children's run. Sign up on www.active.com, stop by the Sheriff's Office in Franklin or Morgan City, or print a registration form from our website here or Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RunWithTheFuzz5kFunRunWalk. There will be a jump castle, food, and door prizes that have been donated by local businesses.
Benevolent Association President and Race Director, Jenifer McDill says, “The heartwarming support our community showed at last year’s event means a lot to our deputies. Knowing that their personal needs will be taken care of in the event of an emergency allows our officers to focus on protecting our community.”
