Belleville Police Running Team

On the 18th of February 2010, the Belleville Police Service approved the formation of the Belleville Police Running Team. This Team consists of five Police Constables that run as a Team in Team Challenge marathon races and relays. The purpose of this team originated with the idea of raising funds for the Quinte Children's Foundation "Playing for Keeps? Program.
The Team's first run was in October 2009 when they competed in the County Marathon in Picton, Ontario. The Team raised approximately $2000.00 for the foundation and finished a respectable 10th place finish out of 28 teams that participated in this event. The Team has another upcoming event on May 16th, 2010 in Mississauga, Ontario when they will be participating in the Team Challenge of the Mississauga Marathon. The Team will continue their efforts to raise funds for the same foundation; their goal is to raise $3500.00 for this event. Anyone interested in assisting or sponsoring the Team in their endeavors, please contact Lyndsey Harker at the Quinte Children's Foundation at 613-962-9291 Ext. 8
