State police ask you to take the Quarantine Challenge Virtual 5K

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – Indiana State Police are throwing their weight behind a new fundraiser that would provide meals for our healthcare workers in the central part of the state.

The new “Bolt For The Heart” fundraising event, which starts Wednesday, consists of a virtual 5K whose purpose is to provide meals for the Emergency Room Healthcare Heroes, who are working to keep us safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The money raised from this effort will purchase coffee and food from Java House Coffee and Titus Bakery, for donation to the emergency rooms around our Central Indiana hospitals. Those wishing to participate can register by clicking here.
