Lambda Alpha Epsilon’s annual Fallen Police Officer Memorial 5K Run/Walk is scheduled for Sunday, April 13 at Hemlock Park in Big Rapids.
The 5K race honors men and women who have bravely given their lives in the line of duty. Proceeds from this race are donated to the Jessica Nagle-Wilson Memorial Scholarship at Ferris. Nagle-Wilson, a Ferris alumna who graduated in 2000, fell in the line of duty in July 2002 while working as a Hazel Park police officer. This scholarship is awarded annually to a Ferris Criminal Justice student.
Registration begins at 12 p.m. followed by the Memorial Service at 12:45 p.m. and the race at 1 p.m.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in each of the divisions.
