From its inception, Sonitrol has been a proud supporter of our men and women in blue. In fact, our company wouldn’t be here today if it hadn’t been for the teamwork of an inventor and a local police officer back in the early 1960s. We are so grateful for all that the Evansville Police Department does to protect and serve our community, which is one of the many reasons we are excited about next week’s EPD Foundation SWAT Challenge.
SWAT challenge, you say? I can hardly do a squat. There’s no need to worry. This unique, 5k urban obstacle course is a family-friendly event. With more than 20 SWAT team members, plus volunteers, stationed to assist you throughout the obstacle course, this event is about being part of the EPD team. Last year’s participants ranged from six-years-old to seniors. From tire and wall obstacles, to being able to run, jump, and slide over cars, this is a 5k unlike any other, and the EPD Foundation welcomes anyone who is up for the challenge to participate.
Proceeds from the event go towards scholarships for EPD family members and specialized equipment and training for the SWAT team. This year’s challenge is on Saturday, May 4th, Star Wars Day, so be prepared to see some Star Wars-themed obstacles and maybe even some characters. Join Sonitrol in supporting the men and women who sacrifice for us twenty-four hours a day to keep our community safe. Register your team or as an individual at www.epdfoundation.org. Together, we can back the blue.
