Olathe Police Foundation 704 Blue Run posted on March 8th, 2019

In January of 2015, the Olathe Police Department’s Officer Michael Kern, radio number 704, passed away from a fatal heart attack while preparing for a Presidential escort.  In his memory the annual 704 Blue Run began and is a tribute to his service and all Olathe officers that have been tragically lost.  This event takes place April 27 on the Indian Creek paved trails and offers a unique distance of 7.04 miles as well as a 5K run/walk.  The 704 Blue Run is a family oriented fun event with the purpose of raising funds to establish college scholarships for Olathe Police Department families.
