DUE TO OPERATIONAL COMMITMENTS THE 2016 NPC 50 RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
On May 13, 2016 the U. S. Secret Service Employee Recreation Association will host the Sixteenth Annual National Police Challenge 50-Kilometer Relay Race (NPC-50). The NPC-50 is run on behalf of Concerns of Police Survivors and H.E.R.O.E.S., both 501(c) 3, not-for-profit organizations.
Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) were organized in 1984 to serve the needs of “spouses, children, parents, siblings … and affected co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty.” COPS offer several programs to help survivors rebuild their lives, including a counseling program, summer camp, retreats and scholarships. H.E.R.O.E.S. was founded in 1964 by “a group of Metropolitan Washington businessmen with the singular goal of assisting the widows and children of law enforcement officers … who give their lives in the line of duty.” The entire H.E.R.O.E.S. program is run by volunteers so that 100% of the donations received go to their programs. To date the NPC-50 has donated over $708,000 to COPS and H.E.R.O.E.S.
The NPC-50 attracts federal, state and local law enforcement teams from around the country. Each team consists of 10 law enforcement personnel and two alternates. We look forward to welcoming 100 or more teams for this year’s competition. In addition to 1200+ runners and alternates, over 200 volunteers and VIPS from the law enforcement community attend this event.
