LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Registration is open for the third annual LPD Foot Pursuit 5k. Runners and non-runners alike are invited to participate in the fundraiser.

All proceeds collected benefit the Heartford House. LPD works closely with Heartford House when dealing with children who are victims of crimes. The department donated $20,000 to Heartford House in 2019.

There will also be a burpee challenge following the race for those interested in showing off their strength.

Specialist Ian O'Shields says the event lets police officers mingle with the public they serve.

"When they're driving by in their squad cars, there's not a lot of opportunity to be approached, right? So to have this, our own outreach event, where people can come and  mingle with police, you get to know us," said O'Shields.

The race will be April 25 at 9 a.m. at the SIA track. Registation is $30 before or $35 the day of. All participants will get a t-shirt and participant medal. 

Registration information can be found here.
