Plans are underway for the 2019 Pear Run and the community is asked to sign up now to show support.
The 2019 Pear Run is celebrating 15 years of police support, healthy living and exercise. Put on by the Pearland Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (PCPAAA), the run has assisted the Pearland PD by purchasing equipment, K-9 officers, officer memorials and more.
This year, the goal is to raise $50,000 for a new mobile command center for SWAT situations and large public events. This command center will be state-of-the-art in technologies to keep citizens safe and assist with police activities.
Sign up now for the 10K or 5K Run, 5K Walk, or Kids Fun Run. Business sponsors will be seen by over 1,000 potential customers. There are several sponsor levels to meet all budgets.
Go to www.pearrun.com for registration and information.
The Pear Run will be May 11, held at the Pearland Town Center Pavilion, 11200 W. Broadway in Pearland. The first race will begin at 7 a.m.
