The College of Criminology & Criminal Justice is excited to announce that registration is now open for the upcoming Blue Light Memorial 5K Run/Walk event on September 11, 2013. The event is the first of its kind for the College and will be held in honor of law enforcement officers who have given their life while serving in the line of duty. All proceeds from the event will go toward a Fallen Officer Memorial at our new location on campus, historic Eppes Hall. The memorial will feature a space to engrave the names of fallen heroes and leave a lasting memory of their service and sacrifice.

The event will include a 5K run/walk, food trucks for refreshment and a special candlelight vigil to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. To register to participate in the event, please click here. Early registration will be available until August 30 at 5 p.m. Late registration will be available online until September 11 at noon and in-person at the event site from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. on September 11.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate and honor the law enforcement community!
