The idea for this run/walk originated after our Dearborn Police family lost Sgt. Christopher Hampton on November 25th, 2020 to suicide during his tour of duty. Chris was a wonderful human being, a caring friend, a loving brother / son / father, and an amazing Police Officer. The 2021 inaugural event was a great success in majority due to the wonderful support we received from the participants, volunteers, business partners, and partnership with Trivium Racing. The reason for continuing this annual event will be to keep the memory and legacy of Sgt. Chris Hampton alive and using our collective family’s loss to help others by raising awareness for those suffering from anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. Those issues regularly plague first responders and effect persons of all backgrounds. Organizations such as the Dearborn Police Officers Charity work to provide support and tools to recognize/assist persons in need.
For 2023, we are excited to announce that we have teamed up with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan as our presenting sponsor for the second year in a row. The registration page has some fun sponsorship levels for any other organizations or entities that wish to support our event. The RoboCop theme was a hit last year and we are keeping that energy going with another of Chris' favorites, Back to the Future. Some fun B2TF theme aspects will be incorporated before and after the race and nobody will be mad at you for participating dressed as your favorite character. Dearborn Brewing will again be on site to support the event and offer some of their delicious selections. All participants are encouraged to hang out after the event for the awards presentation, and to eat, drink, and enjoy some laughs.
Our goal as this 5k continues to grow will be to reach new participants and offer support to a variety of amazing organizations such as Call for Backup and National Alliance on Mental Illness, who all work toward a common goal of awareness and assistance for those in need. Whether you have struggled with mental health yourself, are a suicide survivor, wish to support mental health awareness in first responders, or just want to come out a test your athletic abilities, we welcome you to our fun event.
