Tigard Breakfast Rotary 5K Supports Police K-9 Program
Police need to remain competitive in the effort to reduce crime. Having an effective K-9 program helps police remain steps ahead of the criminal. To that end, the Tigard Breakfast Rotary club is continuing its tradition to raise funds that benefit the Tigard Police Department’s K-9 program.
On Saturday, Oct. 7, the club’s Tigard K-9 5K/ Doggie Dash run/walk event will take place in Cook Park to support the K-9 program. To learn more and register, visit www.tigardK95K.com.
Over the years, the Tigard Breakfast Rotary has assisted with community projects benefiting educational opportunities for students, job training and assisting the underserved population. The Rotary has also made difference supporting police agencies. The upcoming K-9 fundraiser exemplifies the Rotary’s community mission.
Join the Tigard Breakfast Rotary and your friends and neighbors the first Saturday of October as they build community partnerships with local businesses and the public.
