Cops Care
On December 22nd, Officers from the Burlington Police Department paired up with local kids to help them spend $100 at Wal-Mart as part of the Cops Care program. The BPD fundraises all year to support this program wherein kids who may not otherwise get Christmas gifts get to shop with a cop. These families also received two boxes of groceries. Thanks to the Burlington community for supporting this effort and making Christmas wishes come true for 76 children and their families this holiday season.

The No-Frills Trail 5K is a series of trail runs (or hikes, walks or whatever speed you'd like). We just want people to get out, move and have a good time! Since this is not a fancy 5k, we’ll only be providing a well-marked 5K course and a clock so you can see your time as you finish. Let us know you are coming by choosing "Going" on the Facebook event page.

If you want a t-shirt – wear one!
If you need snacks – bring some!
If you want an award – too bad!
