ONALASKA, WI -

You're encouraged to run from the cops this weekend. It's part of a race the Onalaska Police Department is putting on Saturday.

People will run alongside officers from the department, and other officers coming into town. This year, it's a fundraiser for the Coulee Region Children's Internet Protection Task Force and Santa's List.

The department is hoping 500 people sign up to run. "It's really a fun event for us just to get to meet new people and to have a community event where people can come meet us as well," said Onalaska Police Officer Lisa Gerbig.

Online registration has already ended, but you can still register in person through Saturday morning.
