Every fall the Bridgewater Police Department hosts its annual 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run to raise money for charity and local programs.
In 2019 the 6th Annual Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run will be held on Saturday, September 28. The race includes a 5K USA Track & Field certified course for adults and a one-mile fun run for children. The 2019 race will support Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog. For more information about the road race visit the official Bridgewater Police 5K and 1M Kids Fun Run website here or the official Facebook page here.
In 2018 Bridgewater Police Department raised $6,000 for America’s VetDogs. This donation was enough to name a puppy and the Foundation chose the name Cruiser. Cruiser is a black lab who was born in January 2019 and is being raised at Old Colony Correctional Center as a service dog for disabled veterans. His weekend family is Race Director Rebekah Caylor as she and her family had already raised 5 precious puppies with the organization. The Foundation felt that it was important that Cruiser be raised in the community that funded him.
