– The 9th Annual YPD Blue 5K Run for a Reason is Ready to Roll this Sunday, May 15th starting and ending at the Skipper Restaurant, 152 South Shore Drive, in beautiful South Yarmouth, Massachusetts.

Run for a Reason is a healthy fundraiser designed to honor and remember those who make a difference in our community during National Police Week which recognizes the service and sacrifice of all United States Law Enforcement Officers.
