In 2011, we introduced the Race for the Fallen as a tribute to officers who risk their lives to serve our communities and to honor the sacrifices made by the families of these local heroes. This year?s race will feature a 5K Jersey Jog (run/walk) for intermediate runners, and it?s our hope that the 2013 race will be the best ever. 5K participants are encouraged to wear their favorite sports team jersey or colors - collegiate or professional. Teams and sports themes are always welcomed.
