Join us as we continue to break the stigma surrounding first responders coming forward for mental health treatment.

Each year, there is a growing number of  law enforcement officers who die by suicide. At BeyondTheBadgeNY we are trying to outrun the stigma surrounding  law enforcement officers coming forward for mental health treatment , acknowledge the service and sacrifice of those we lost to suicide, as well as provide assistance to the families in the aftermath. 

Thank you to NYPD Triathlon team for designing our beautiful course as we will be running/Walking through the scenic trails of Massapequa Preserve

This event is dedicated in memory of NYPD Officer Richard Catapano JR who died by suicide on 8/2/2020

Proceeds of this event will assist in initiatives for numerous departments to help boost morale and officers mental health, assistance for families after a suicide, grief groups, seminars for officers, events and other costs associated with awareness and prevention. 

Course Description

The 3.1 mile course will start on a closed road and quickly enter the scenic Massapequa Preserve after a few hundred yards. Once in the preserve, runners will spend about half the race on dirt/gravel trails, and half on a paved trail. Runners will again exit the preserve onto the roadway for a few hundred yards to the finish line.
