On August 25, 2018, our club sponsored and participated in the Hot Pursuit 5K walk/run organized by the Brookhaven Police Department. The club, through its Foundation, donated $1500 to sponsor 20 running spots for the 5K Run. The funds raised through the 5K run are used by the Brookhaven Police Department to help officers participate in the "Shop with a Cop" program where policemen take a needy child or children shopping before Christmas. Our club member, Chief Gary Yandura, reports that the Shop with a Cop program is an extremely rewarding and successful community relations program for his Police Department, and by participating in the run our members were able to spend time with their fellow Brookhaven residents talking about Rotary and all that our Club accomplishes in the community.
