What is the mission of the Officers Down 5k?

The Officers Down 5K celebrates officers who put their lives on the line daily to keep our communities safe and honor those who have fallen in the line of duty. While officers give to the community on a daily basis, it is now our time to give back. We bring communities together with their local law enforcement by partnering with local departments, FOP's and non-profit organizations to help support their cause. Each partner will receive a revenue share 45 business days after the event.


iS od5k non-profit?

The OD5K is a for-profit event management company. We partner with charities and non-profit organizations at a local and national level which gives Officers Down 5K the opportunity to spread our mission of supporting law enforcement and the honor of assisting charities in raising funds for their cause. 


How do you become a local partner?

Any organization wishing to have OD5K come to their city should email info@officersdown5k.com to discuss potential dates and venue sites. The partner should provide information on their organization, including their mission and what their goals are in having OD5K host an event in their town.



How much does it cost to have an OD5K event in my city?

OD5K handles all event logistics, expenses, marketing, design and planning. We travel to your city with our team and handle everything the day of the event. We contact local law enforcement agencies and invite them to the event. OD5K will provide tables, water, gatorade, inflatables, games, lunch and other activities when applicable. There is no cost to our local partner.


What is expected of the local partner?

We ask that our local partners invite friends to their designated social media Facebook event page and share via email and Facebook. This allows increased outreach and awareness to your local area with a goal of increasing attendance for the event. OD5K will provide our partners with printed marketing material including posters and sponsorship packets to post around their community. 


HOW MUCH MONEY GOES BACK TO THE PARTNER?

The amount of money that goes back to our partner for each event is determined in discussions with our partner. Our partners sign off on an engagement letter in which the agreed percentage of revenue share is listed.   If you wish to know more information on revenue shares for a specific event, please contact us!


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LAUNCH AND PLAN AN EVENT?

Once you reach out to OD5K, it can take up to one week to lock in venue sites and dates.  Once confirmed and an engagement letter is signed, OD5K will launch the event page and registration.  Our marketing team will begin working on print material and our event coordinators and director of operations will ensure all logistics are handled to make the event day run smoothly.


Thank you all so much for being a part of the law enforcement family!
