ABOUT THE FREEDOM RUN

The Freedom Run 5K honors the bravery of Dallas’ first responders and police officers by raising money for the Dallas Assist the Officer Foundation (ATO). The Freedom Run was first organized by the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers (DAYL) immediately following 9/11 and has been held every September since 2001.  The Freedom Run unites our community in tribute to the heroes and victims of that harrowing date, and to honor the sacrifices our police officers and first responders make on a daily basis. Since 2001, DAYL’s Freedom Run has raised over $400,000 for ATO. This would not have been possible without the continued support of our generous sponsors and volunteers. 

Last year, we honored five officers: Officer Ismael Alvarez, Officer Jacob Arrellano, Senior Corporal Scott Jay, Sgt. Claude Standridge, and Officer Steve Nothem. Read more about them below.
