Background on Molly’s Miles:
Shortly after the 2016 Dallas police shooting tragedy, MUPD Lt. Buddy Anliker and his wife, Christie, were compelled to do something to assist those affected by losing their loved ones in the line of duty. In alignment with this objective, the family reached out to the Missouri Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) whose mission is to provide resources to assist in the rebuilding of lives of the survivors of Missouri law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. The Anliker’s found the organization could use assistance in raising funds to continue to support affected families. With a passion for running, the Anlikers created the idea to hold a 5K in memory of fallen officers and to honor their survivors; all funds would benefit C.O.P.S. Molly’s Miles is named after Columbia Police Officer Molly Bowden who was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2005.
Molly’s Miles’ mission is to bring everyone – law enforcement, youth, families, organizations, and runners – together to honor the memory of fallen law enforcement officers and the survivors they left behind.
You can still participate through our Virtual Run! When you register for the Virtual Run, you make a commitment to run a 5K or 10K at your convenience and on a course of your choosing. Virtual runners will still receive a finisher medal.
Adults/Youth – $20
