Please note that the CPTC Cops 4 Kids 5K event & run is in no way affiliated with the 501(c)(3) charity Fort Worth Cops for Kids.
Please join us and Police Departments within Tarrant County to help raise funds for children in the local community that have been victimized by abuse or neglect!
Tarrant County Police Departments have joined with Community Partners of Tarrant County 501(c)(3) (CPTC)* to meet additional needs that children within Child Protective Services may have.
Sadly- there are thousands of children in Tarrant County that are in Relative Placements, Foster Homes, Residential Treatment Centers, Group Homes, Emergency Shelters, and/or otherwise displaced. These children are the victims of one or many things- physical abuse, sexual abuse, crippling emotional abuse, neglect, and then some.
Many do not want to hear about these issues; because- it isn’t pretty. It doesn’t make people feel good. We cannot simply advertise about the progress of a child that had maggots living in their hair, or children being assaulted by those closest to them, or babies living in homes manufacturing methamphetamine. But this and more happens- EVERY SINGLE DAY.
These children are sometimes placed with family members- struggling to make ends meet with even their own children. Or placed into Foster Homes. Or separated from siblings into emergency shelters until placement becomes available.
Proceeds from this event take care of many ‘little things’ that might make the lives of these children more ‘normal.’
Some examples include:
-Funds for attending extra-curricular summer camps
-Caps, gowns, class rings for high school graduates
-Recreational activities (Scout programs, swim lessons, athletics, music lessons, etc.)
-Clothes, Diapers, Lice kits, specialty formula, shoes, etc.
-Birthday gifts, basic prom expenses, other special events
-The list goes on- and fluctuates based on need.
In the darkest hours these kids may be facing, you have helped give them comfort in the sense of having one less worry. One less stress. You have let them be children again- if only for a moment.
