On Sunday, September 29, LCC K-9 Police Ministry Dogs Addie and Leah (Immanuel - Danbury, Connecticut) attended the 6th Annual "Believe 208: Run for the Brave & Finest" 5K Run in East Hartford, Connecticut.
This event started as a way to remember the service of Officer Paul Buchanan (Badge #208) of East Hartford Police Department, who died by suicide in 2013, after suffering job-related post traumatic stress. His wife, Trish, organizes the event to bring awareness to first responder post-traumatic stress (PTS) and suicide. All proceeds go toward helping first responders and family members with training and resources related to maintaining well-being.
LCC K-9 Police Ministry Dogs Addie and Leah were blessed to offer comfort and support to Trish Buchanan, first responders, and other family and friends as they gathered to remember loved ones.
