Shop With a Cop

MURPHY, NC – The inaugural Cherokee County Shop With a Cop 5K Fun Run/Walk will be held Saturday, Nov. 23, at 10 a.m. in Konehete Park in Murphy.

The Murphy Police Department is headlining the event and is asking for participants and sponsors.

All proceeds from the run run/walk will benefit the Cherokee County Shop with a Cop program, which helps underprivileged children in the county have a chance at a happy Christmas season.

Registration for the event is $25 before Nov. 5, with late registration running from Nov. 4 until 8 a.m. Nov. 23.

Registration costs $30 on race day.

Those who preregister are guaranteed a memorial T-shirt from the event, which is scheduled to take place rain or shine.

Only those who preregister are guaranteed a specific size. For those who register late, or signup for the event on race day, T-shirts will be first-come, first served.

The program is also looking for sponsors, who will be featured on the memorial T-shirt.

To be a gold-level sponsor costs $200 or more. Those sponsors will get a copy of their business card printed on the back of each T-shirt. Silver-level sponsorship costs between $150 and $199 and earns the sponsor a large font name print below the business cards. Bronze-level sponsors – between $100 and $149 – will have their name printed in small font on the bottom of the T-shirt’s back.
