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.
ABOUT OUR EVENT
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:
-High School Graduation Expenses
-Recreational activities (swim lessons, athletics, music lessons, etc.)
-Clothing, diapers, lice kits, specialty formula, shoes, etc.
-Sibling visitations, basic prom expenses, other special events
-The list goes on- and fluctuates based on need.
