In 2016, the residents of Richland, Michigan lost one of our most valuable police officers in the line of duty. The Rose Run started to honor Officer Collin Rose and all police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
The Rose Run is actually based off of an event that started nearly a decade ago by a group of passionate citizens. They found a way to combine their love for running and connecting with the community in an annual road race. In the wake of Sgt. Collin Rose's death, our organizers took this race over in his honor. Reach out to our organizers to learn more about this Summer's 5K and 10K races.
In addition to honoring the life of Sgt. Collin Rose, we launched The Rose Run to bring awareness to police officers who have fallen in the line of duty. We at The Rose Run are honored to "back the blue" on July 4, 2017 and remember a valued community member.
