In Hot Pursuit 5K set for Nov. 15

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office’s 7th Annual ‘In Hot Pursuit’ 5K is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 15 on Pensacola Beach. Over the past seven years the run has become famous for its fun beach course and the best door prizes around. Most importantly, all proceeds from the race will go to support the Florida Sheriff’s Association Youth Ranches. The race will start at 8 a.m. near the Pavilion on Pensacola Beach. Early registration is only $15 on through October 1.

The mission of the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches is to prevent delinquency and develop strong, lawful, resilient, and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to our communities for years to come. This year the Youth Ranches will serve over 5,000 needy boys and girls.

This charitable, non-profit childcare agency was founded by the Florida Sheriff’s Association and operates four residential campuses and two camping facilities. Additionally, it provides community- based services and family counselling to as many of Florida’s neglected, troubled children as funds will permit. The organization is funded primarily through charitable donations from its donors.

We are currently seeking sponsors who are interested in joining us in support of this important organization. As a sponsor of ‘In Hot Pursuit’, your organization’s name would appear on the complimentary t-shirt that all race participants will receive as well as on the list of sponsors that will be included in the race packets. Donations to this event may be monetary or in-kind and are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. For more information, contact Sgt. Ted Roy (850) 554-1358 or Sena Maddison (850) 436-9277.
