The Morris County Park Police invite you to join them Saturday, Oct. 17 for a Cops Kick for Kids event to raise money for the children of law enforcement families in need.

Cops Kick for Kids is a soccer penalty kick-a-thon that will kick off at noon at Loantaka Brook Reservation, 468 South St., in Morris Township. The event is open to boys and girls 5 years of age and older as well as adults.

Participants will take five shots on goal from the penalty box. A goalie in both male and female categories will be in the net to attempt to stop the goal. First, second and third place trophies will be awarded to those with the most goals scored in each age group. In the event of a tie, a “sudden death” kick-off will determine the winner.

The cost is $20 per participant, and donations and sponsorships are welcome. Participants will receive T-shirts and goodie bags, and a DJ, karaoke, face painting, door prizes and more will also be part of the day’s event.

Proceeds will also benefit the Morris County Park Police Child ID Program.

Online pre-registration on the Park Police Web site www.morrisparkpolice.org.is strongly suggested. Registration the day of the penalty kick-a-thon begins at 10:30 a.m.
