Frontline Redefined. IPSF Recognizes Expanded First Responder Family for COVID-19 Response & More

2020 has been a challenging year for Indy’s first responders and our community. From the tragic line of duty death of IMPD Officer Breann Leath to a global pandemic coursing through our country to civil unrest, our city’s first responders have continued to answer the call and risk their safety on our behalf.

COVID-19 and the efforts needed to mitigate its impact have presented significant challenges to all individuals, businesses and organization in our city. Businesses have been shuttered, programming paused, and everyone is anxiously monitoring the careful re-opening of our economy.

While most of our community has stayed home with or without continued pay from employers to prevent the virus’s spread, a group of brave and selfless first responders have worked long hours and put their safety at risk to ensure our community is safe and healthy during the pandemic response. This year, we redefine first responders to include not only police officers, firefighters and EMS but also the individuals keeping our hospitals, grocery stores, restaurants and other essential businesses and services open and available. This year, at IPSF’s signature event – The Frontline Experience, presented by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - we plan to provide an opportunity for sponsors and supporters to show our incredible gratitude to ALL first responders.

On Friday, September 25, Frontline Experience sponsors and guests will be spaced out trackside along the home stretch of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. From 5 to 9 pm, IPSF will provide a continuous, exciting stream of agency apparatus, personnel, entertainment and more. Sponsors and guests will take part in a historic “gratitude parade” of first responders to show our support of women and men who demonstrated courage, dedication and sacrifice during these trying times.

Your support will help us meet the needs of Indy's police, fire and EMS.
