2022 Nationwide Run for the Badge

9am Eastern, October 1, 2022
Participate Remotely!

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund annual Run for the Badge is a flagship community event that demonstrates support for law enforcement, generates excitement for the organization’s museum and special programs, and raises critical funds needed for our mission to honor the fallen, tell the story of American law enforcement, and make it safer for those who serve.

So that we can bring together communities across the nation for this important and popular event in support of law enforcement, the 2022 Run for the Badge will be 100% virtual. Participants can raise money, gather teams with friends and family anywhere in the country, and walk, run, or bike in their own communities.

Run Day

Run for the Badge is officially October 1, 2022, and participants around the country will be walking, running, and biking beginning at 9am Eastern that day. However, participants may choose to run in their location any day through October 1.
