The last couple of weeks have been brutal for local runners.  Heat and humidity have made it really difficult to get in a good run.  That's about to change, as the forecast is calling for good weather starting Saturday, which happens to be the day of the "Cops for the Community 5k run/walk in Lapeer.

The race begins at 9 am on Saturday, July 7th at the Lapeer Community Center.  Race morning registration begins at 7:45 at the Community Center at 880 S. Saginaw Street in Lapeer.

Proceeds from this event will help raise money for the Lapeer City Police Officers Charitable Fund, which makes the "Shop with a Hero" program possible, also law enforcement education programs in schools and other people or groups that might be in need.

The course is flat and fast, and with the nice weather predicted for Saturday, you should have a good run.  If you need more information, you are urged to contact Chuck Bonesteel at (810) 664-0883 or email him at:  cbonesteel@cl.lapeer.mi.us
