Run Across Michigan | $1,923.99 Donated

Last summer, Matt Garbarino touched the lives of many when he ran 160 miles across the state in honor of all of Michigan’s fallen officers. Garbarino is a Reserve Deputy and serves with the Kent County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Squad. He knows first hand what it means to be a police officer and the sacrifices they make every day. With this in mind, he decided to yet again, take on the long journey across the state of Michigan, carrying the Thin Blue Line American Flag in-hand with every step.

Our team at Thin Blue Line USA, located in Wixom, Michigan, sought an opportunity to support his inspirational efforts and the incredible cause that he was running for. His mega-marathon began to raise money for the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), a non-profit organization that offers support to the surviving families of officers killed in the line of duty. Last summer, he raised over $9,000 after completing his challenging run.

We launched a bracelet fundraiser and created apparel for Matt’s organization, called Run Across Michigan. The items featured his logo and a description of his cause. Through the sales on our website, a total of $1,923.99 was raised and donated to the Michigan Concerns of Police Survivors on his behalf.

Thank you, Matt, for volunteering your time to service and for channeling your passion for fitness into a positive force that continues to spread throughout our communities of Michigan. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do next.
