Cops for Kopp

Corporal Benjamin S. Kopp was a United States Army Ranger who saved six fellow Rangers during a firefight with the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2009. Ben sustained injuries from this firefight that he wasn't able to recover from, and he died only eight days later. Ben is a Rosemount High School graduate and an American Hero.

In 2017, Officer Witt ran 4 miles in uniform to raise money for the Ben Kopp Memorial Ride.

On July 21st 2018, additional Officers with the Rosemount Police Department will run 4 miles in uniform during the Run for the Gold to honor Ben and raise money for the Ben Kopp Memorial Ride. Proceeds will be donated to HOOAH Inc, which supports our troops, veterans and their families.

Please consider donating to honor Ben and to support our heroes!

Thank you!
