About the Sunshine 5K

This is a family fun run, raising funds for Backing the Blue Line and the Officer Besser Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Backing the Blue Line is a locally founded 501(c)(3) non-profit organization composed of police wives dedicated ot the support of the law enforcement community in Minnesota.  Officer Besser loved the time he served as a police liason for the Elk River School District.  He loved people and especially enjoyed the students.  He had a strong relationship with God and was always serving others in the community and also our country through his service in the Air Force.  He brought a light, fun environment wherever he went and was known for saying - GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE!  We hope to honor him and his service by assisting local area students in furthering their education with the scholarship fund.
