Officer Eric J. Williams Memorial 5k Run and Walk

Date: TBD

The 6th Annual Officer Eric J Williams Memorial 5k Race will be a challenging and fun event with a focus on honoring fallen officers and to raise money to award scholarships to students, criminal justice majors, and law enforcement programs. We have a pre-run ceremony to honor and remember the fallen correctional officers who died in the line of duty, and pay tribute to all law enforcement personnel and first responders who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.

Each participant is asked to designate a college, trade school, or police academy of their choice, and a drawing is then held by the race committee and the institution(s) receiving the scholarship awards are picked.
