While on duty on Saturday, August 6, 2011, Officer Jeremy Henwood stopped for a quick bite to eat at a local McDonalds, and without knowing it, provided his last act of kindness as he purchased a cookie for young boy who didn’t have enough money. As he departed, Officer Henwood left that young boy with advice and words of encouragement to work hard to reach his goals. Officer Henwood and fellow likeminded officers, whose generosity and passion to support youth in our community, are invaluable and a key component to the existence of STAR/PAL. Thanks to our committed volunteers from local law enforcement agencies and community support, STAR/PAL is able to provide over 10,000 youth services annual throughout the county of San Diego. Event Highlights: Bring in the New Year with an exciting indoor triathlon. Event held at Jewish Community Center located at 4126 Executive Drive. Compete against fellow law enforcement officers, public safety personnel, and members of the community, in a event that directly benefits the underserved youth of San Diego and the San Diego Police Officers Association’s Widows and Orphans Fund. Great opportunity for beginners to get a taste of the triathlon experience. More seasoned competitors can use the event to measure their 2013 fitness level. Registration is limited to the first 48 individual participants and 6 relay teams. Individual awards by age group. This race is expected to sell out!
