Memorial dog-friendly run/walk held during Wayne State University homecoming festivities

Posted by: jgomori Posted date: September 4, 2019

The third annual Collin Rose 2K9 Memorial Run & 5K will be held at Wayne State’s Matthaei Athletic Complex on Oct. 12 as part of the University’s homecoming celebration. The event features a competitive 5K and dog friendly 2K run/walk.

The Officer Collin Rose Memorial Foundation hosts the annual event which honors the late Wayne State University Police Sergeant Collin Rose, who was a POLC member, and his two police dogs Clyde and Wolverine. Rose was killed on a street investigation in November 2016 and posthumously promoted to sergeant.

Foundation President Chris Powell said their organization is excited to bring the event to campus as part of homecoming festivities. The 5K starts at 11 a.m. followed by the dog-friendly 2K at 11:10 a.m. The Warriors play the Ferris State University Bulldogs that evening at 6 p.m.

“Collin graduated from Ferris State and attended their police academy before he was hired as a police officer at Wayne State,” Powell said. “He was a proud Ferris graduate, so that made it particularly exciting for us to host the race here and help kick off Homecoming activities. We’re hoping that a number of Ferris students and alumni will join us at the race and help celebrate Collin.”

All participants who pre-register by Sept. 20 are guaranteed a race bib and T-shirt.
