Behind the Badge Foundation

My sweet wonderful sister-in-law sent me a link today. She is so thoughtful.

You can read what she sent me HERE. I love that she was thinking about me and she knows what I'm passionate about. I wonder if she knows that I've totally not been doing the research I promised myself I would do. Well, now she does.

Behind the Badgee Foundation

After reading that article I just kept clicking away until I found THIS! And now I'm just about giddy as I finally finally finally have not only an organization, but also something that is already planned that I can participate in. After reading about this foundation I am so thankful for them. The Behind the Badge foundation provides funding for funerals of fallen officers.  Hard to believe we lost so many officers in Washington state last year. I still can't stomach the violence that was poured out on our law enforcement family. 


I am excited to take part in the 5K that is happening in June. I am hopeful that our Cop's Wives Club will be able to raise funds so we can make a donation to Behind the Badge in honor of our husbands and all the men and women who are out there every day.


I'm sure I'll have more to share as we get closer to the actual date. Until then, on top of letting Jillian Michael's yell at me everyday I'm going to have to start running. Hear that Alison? Have that baby so we can start getting ready for this thing!!

  1. Oh man! I wish I could run that. Is this just a Washington state thing? Or national?

  3. Sister Copinherhair: I'm pretty sure BTB is specific to Washington state but from what I was reading on their site I wouldn't be surprised if each state had something similar since public funds aren't allowed to be used to fund police funerals.
