About the Chelsea Chase 5k Road Race:
The Chelsea Chase 5K supports two great causes: The Boys & Girls Club AND the Chelsea Police Relief Association:
- The mission of the Jordan Boys & Girls Club is to help young people, ages 6-18, especially those who need us most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders. This event supports programs for the 250 Club members who attend every day, participating in activities that help build values, skills, knowledge, and community. This event not only focuses on overall health of our Club members, but also giving back to the community through our strong relationship with the Chelsea Police Department.
- The Chelsea Police Relief Association’s mission is to provide death benefits to families of officers; since CPRA began, the City of Chelsea has lost six officers. This event takes place of calls for support that took place in the past to support this very worthy cause.
Come on out to support Chelsea’s finest!
