Badge of Honor Ruthkosky Wine Run
The 2nd Annual Badge of Honor, Ruthkosky’s Wine Run. Cheers to Life- Run/Walk 5k/1k for the Mental & Physical Health of NEPA Police Officers & Firefighters honors those who lost the fight to mental illness while supporting those that “Serve and Save” in our community.
Proceeds raised from this event will be distributed among LRJ Foundation’s programs to educate the community and schools on mental health education, and two distinguished civil service groups; Police officers and Firefighters in Northeastern Pennsylvania..
Derek Ruthkosky, the race’s namesake, felt at home in the Taylor Borough Fire & Rescue fire hall, where his fellow volunteer firefighters considered him a brother.
The hope to this event is that it will bring into light that asking for help, talking and sharing one’s problems is not something to be afraid of and to encourage others to take the potentially lifesaving step of reaching out for help.
