URBANDALE, Iowa - Looking for something to do this Saturday?
Join in on the free event, Run for the Badge.
Urbandale Mayor Bob Andeweg and the Urbandale Police Department are hosting the big event on Saturday, October 14 beginning at 8:00 A.M. Mayor Andeweg will be anchoring #TeamJustin as he completes one of three courses provided to runners/walkers by the city: a 5K, 1-Mile Run, or a 1-mile walk.
The event comes nearly one year after Urbandale Officer Justin Martin was shot and killed in the line of duty.
The Run for the Badge is in support of the brave men and women of law enforcement who put their lives on the line every day to protect the public.
This event is free and open to everyone. Registration will take place from 7-7:30 A.M. at Martin Field where participants will sign a waiver, receive a free #TeamJustin t-shirt, bracelet and course map. T-Shirts and Bracelets are only available to the first 100 participants.
Proceeds will be donated to Run for the Badge, an organization that creates memorials for officers lost in the line of duty. Anyone interested in helping the Mayor reach his $1000.00 goal can donate
