2019 SWAT Challenge
Brought to you by the Evansville Police Foundation.
The EPD Foundation SWAT Challenge is a fun, challenging 5K run with obstacles like walls, tires and climbing up a parking structure with a sandbag. Takes place Saturday, May 4, 2019, in Downtown Evansville. 2018 was a big success with over 400 participants registered, ranging from 9 years old to seniors.
This is a fundraiser for the Evansville Police Department Foundation (www.epdfoundation.org). The EPD Foundation is a 501(c)3 that has been in operation for 11 years.
The Foundation provides specialized equipment, training, college scholarships for officer’s children and support when an officer and/or their family is going through a personal crisis. The SWAT Challenge race proceeds have been used primarily for advanced training for the EPD SWAT Team.
Heritage Petroleum is again our event sponsor this year.
