PARTNERS FOR LIFE
POLICE APPRECIATION RUN / WALK
May 6, 2012 - Downtown St. Petersburg
Join us for the 2nd Annual Partners for Life Police Appreciation Run / Walk on Sunday, May 6 to memorialize our fallen officers, show appreciation to all law enforcement officers, and raise money for the Partners For Life Foundation, created to lend support to families who lose loved ones to senseless acts of violence.
Dedicated to the fallen officers in St. Petersburg last year, we invite athletes and supporters to show appreciation to our officers by participating in the:
• 6:59 am K-9 Officer Jeff Yaslowitz 10K Race / Walk
• 8:30 am Sergeant Tom Baitinger 5K Race / Walk
• 10:30 am Officer Dave Crawford 1 Mile Walk to Remember
These events were established by Lorraine Yaslowitz in memory of Jeff, Tom, and Dave.
Lorraine and Jeff often ran together and competed at local races. That, combined with Lorraine’s desire to memorialize Jeff in a positive way, to thank the Tampa Bay community for their support during last year’s tragedy, and to thank police officers everywhere, motivated Lorraine to establish the Partners for Life Foundation.
ALL proceeds from the race after expenses will go to the Partners for Life Foundation. Our inaugural race last May attracted 1,170 athletes and generated $20,000 in net proceeds to establish the Partners for Life Foundation. Of all the fundraisers / memorials that have taken place, this is the foundation that Lorraine created on her own to remember her husband Jeff and his fellow officers, Tom and Dave.
All courses are in downtown St. Petersburg and will feature the dowtown waterfront. They are mostly flat and aesthetically varied.
