Phoenix Police Foundation 3rd Annual Honor Walk/Run Event
Phoenix Police Headquarters - Phoenix
Charity/Benefit Events


PHOENIX (February 09, 2023) – The Phoenix Police Foundation is hosting the third annual Honor Walk/Run Event to recognize 41 Phoenix police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. The event will take place the week of March 19.

Each fallen officer has a memorial marker in the location where they sacrificed their lives for the safety of the community. The Foundation provides a map disclosing the locations of the mile markers and encourages participants to stop by a memorial on their route.

The event has both walking and running options for a one-mile route and 5K route. Once finished, participants can post personal results and photos to social media and on the race website between March 19-25, 2023.

“This is event not only honors those who laid down their lives to serve our community, but also provides comfort to their families and reminds the community what our officers risk every day when they go to work,” said Timothy Thomas, president of the Phoenix Police Foundation. “Our last two honor races have been extremely successful, and we hope to have even more people involved in this year’s event.”

Money raised from this year’s event will be used to construct an honor wall for each of the fallen officers in the lobby of the newly redesigned Phoenix Police Headquarters. Any remaining funds will help subsidize the unmet capital needs of the Phoenix Police Department, providing monetary assistance during crisis situations and helping fund future honor events. 

Early bird registration for the 2023 Honor Walk/Run is $35 but prices will increase to $40 on February 28. The last day to register is March 11.

In addition to the money raised through registration fees, corporate sponsorships are integral to the event’s success. This year’s Honor Run/Walk presenting sponsor is Circle K Grand Canyon Division.
