The Lackawanna College Protect & Defend 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, July 22, 2018, beginning and ending at the Lackawanna County Courthouse, 200 N. Washington Ave., Scranton.

Registration will be held from 8-9 a.m., with the race beginning at 9:30 a.m. Registration is $25 before the race or $30 on the day of the race.

The first 200 registrants will be guaranteed a race performance T-shirt.

The Protect & Defend 5K was first held in May 2015 to benefit the Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson and Tpr. Alex Douglass Funds following an attack that killed and injured troopers at the PSP Blooming Grove barracks on Sept. 12, 2014.

Following the on-duty death of Scranton Patrolman John J. Wilding on July 12, 2015, race benefits since 2016 have been directed to the Ptlm. John J. Wilding Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Lackawanna College Police Academy. Wilding was an Academy graduate who had also briefly served the Lackawanna College Public Safety Department.
