COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Once a year, the Fallen Officer 5K is held to remember officers who have defended Georgia residents, and lost their lives be being a hero.
The race is set for Saturday, May 11. That morning, registration opens at 7:00, and runners will take off at 8:00. Participants should meet at the start of the race, Lost Mountain Baptist Church on Old Dallas Road.
Funds collected from the race will help families make a trip to Washington D.C. for a memorial during Police Week that is taking place later in May. The Memorial helps families who have lost loved ones to keep healing. Helping out with the race is Concerns of Police Survivors, a nonprofit that helps families cope.
