It all started when…

WITH ARMS WIDE OPEN.png

Of the 40,000 members of the New York City Police Department, it is estimated that nearly 5,000 members have a child with special needs. In addition to the daily stresses associated with protecting and serving the city, those with special needs children have to deal with added financial, emotional and physical challenges. The 5k is intended to not only raise funds for these families but provide a platform that embodies support for these families throughout the entire police department and beyond. 100% of the profits from this event will be donated to an organization that assist the men and women of the NYPD with their children that have special needs. That wonderful organization is known as WITH ARMS WIDE OPEN.
