113 THE RETURN 5K RUN & 1 MILE WALK
The Millville Police Department welcomes the return of this 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk to honor fallen Officer Christopher Reeves #113.
Officer Reeves was killed in the line of duty on July 8th 2012, leaving behind his wife, son, family, and many friends. Since 2014 the Millville Police Department has chosen to honor Chris (Superman) in a special way with a scholarship in his name. The Run/Walk returns after 2 years and we are once again encouraging participants to dress up as their favorite superhero in recognition of Chris's heroic name and legacy. The funds raised from this event are awarded to graduating seniors from Millville Senior High School to continue their education. Additional contributions to the Officer Christopher Reeves Scholarship Fund can be made at the "Donate" tab.

COURSE: This year the course will once again start behind the Millville Police Department at Chris's parking spot, where a memorial in his honor stands, as well as bring runners by his gravesite at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, before finishing along the Maurice River in Waltman Park. *Please note that the finish line is roughly a quarter mile from the start. No transportation will be provided to and from*
The route for the 1 Mile Walk is yet to be determined for this year. In previous years, the Walk was from Millville PD to Christopher's gravesite, however we are unable to confirm whether transportation can/will be provided. Either way, there will be an option to walk in Chris's honor this year. Please stay tuned for updates.
