Vienna Fun Run Connects Kids With Local Law Enforcement

The annual Cops & Kids Fun Run will soon return to the Town of Vienna.

Scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 22, this free athletic event gives community members the chance to get to know members of the Vienna Police Department while enjoying various festivities.

The police department has arranged for family-friendly activities including police motorcycle and helicopter tours, a dunk-a-cop dunk tank, food, an obstacle course and a mile-long run.

The event will be held at the Vienna Elementary School (128 S. Center Street). Registration is now open, and the first 300 kids to register will receive a t-shirt and goody bag.

This community outreach tradition began in the ’90s but was recently revitalized.

“After a break of more than a decade, in 2016 Chief Morris assembled a team to revive the beloved community event with hopes of making it bigger and better than ever,” according to the event website.
