Anyone who can attend a run to remember or walk even should go😊 my family members are police officers & raising $ for does officers that had to lose their life to save someone else's should be at least given that supported respect from the public not all cops are bad people the public should know that😊👮♀️👮♂️ I hope I see a big crowd next year come join me roll or walk😊 please & thank you 😁
Beautiful and moving. Got there when it was dark but that did not take away from its beauty. Very touching.
