Since 1993, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office’s Ride and Run With The Stars has given hope and help to needy children and families during the holidays.Learn More About Our History
Celebrating 27 Years!
For 26 years, Ride & Run With The Stars has brought the community together to participate in athletic competition, a silent auction, and a special delivery of Mr. and Mrs. Claus via helicopter. We look forward to this holiday fundraiser every year, which is why the decision to cancel this year’s event was a difficult one. However, we must consider the health and safety of our community during these trying times.
Despite not having an in-person event, I hope you will continue to support Ride & Run With The Stars’ charity—the Sheriff’s Christmas Sharing Project. Last year, we raised enough money to provide food, clothing, books, and toys to more than 384 underprivileged families and 862 deserving children whom sheriff’s office members identified through their daily interaction in the community as homeless, economically stressed, victimized, or abused. Here are a few ways you can support the Sheriff’s Christmas Sharing Project by December 1st:
- Mail your check made payable to Ride & Run With The Stars to P.O. Box 2500, Largo, FL 33779 Attn: Sergeant Elizabeth Brady
- Make an electronic payment at https://www.rideandrunwiththestars.com/
- Adopt a family by contacting Sandra Garcia-Olivares, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Victim Advocate, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 727-582-6465
No matter the size, every contribution is valuable and a treasured holiday gift to the less fortunate families in our community, especially after this challenging year. Stay well, and I hope you find new ways for togetherness this holiday season.
