Glenview Police Dept.
Grayslake Police Dept.

In 2008 members of the Vernon Hills Police Department established the "Run From the Cops"5K as a way to facilitate positive interaction with our community while raising funds to honor our nation's veterans. Since then, volunteer members of the department along with our families, friends and community volunteers have raised over $50, ooo for our nation's heroes. This year, 100% of the net proceeds from the event will be donated to Honor Flight Chicago. It is the mission of Honor Flight to bring our country's greatest non-renewable resource, its veterans, to Washington, D.C. for a day of honor. Please help as we attempt to sponsor as many of our veterans as possible, especially those of our greatest generation.
