Health and Wellness Field Day

On Saturday, September 10th we held the 2nd Annual Boston Police Foundation Health and Wellness Field Day at Franklin Playstead Park. We invited members of the Boston Police Department to enjoy a day of fun while providing physical and mental health resources. Guests participated in obstacle courses, climbed rock walls and participated in carnival style games. The obstacle course was set up by the Boston Police Academy and participants were rewarded with prizes. We also had live music from the Southern City Band and a roaming magician who entertained the crowd. The Boston Police Patrolman’s Association and the Detectives Benevolent Society provided delicious food for the crowd.   We would like to thank Planet Fitness for being a sponsor for this year’s event. We would also like to thank the Boston Police Peer Support Unit, the Boston Police Academy, the Boston Police Teen Academy, the Boston Police Patrolman’s Association, the Boston Police Detectives Benevolent Society, Yogaworks Back Bay, Recycle Studio, Edward Jones and Boston Home Center for participating in the event.

Operation Hoodsie

We are proud to announce that the Operation Hoodsie is now operational! Due to incredible support we were able to provide the Boston Police Department a brand new Ice Cream Truck to further their Community Policing initiatives. Operation Hoodsie will travel around the Boston Community handing out free Ice Cream to the residents. The Ice Cream Truck is one of Boston’s signature Community Policing Efforts and has shown an incredible impact. We are committed to assisting the department with their Community Policing efforts and will do everything we can to improve the relationships within the Community. Thank you to our supporters for giving us the opportunity to assist the BPD with this initiative.
