Exercising for a good cause.
People ran through Memorial Park in Rapid City Saturday morning, to honor the men and women who keep our community safe.
The second annual "Heroes Wear Blue Memorial 5K" kicked off at 9 a.m. to remember fallen Officers Ryan McCandless and Nick Armstrong, as well as recognizing those who currently serve.
About 300 were registered for the event. Pre–registration cost $15 and day-of cost $20.
Sarah Morrison, chair of the Fraternal Order of Police Wives' Club, says after paying off the cost of putting on the 5K, the wives will decide which charities will receive donations. "Thought it would be a great way to recognize law enforcement and raise money to give back to non-profit organizations in the Black Hills," said Morrison.
Jesse Sewell crossed the finish line first. "It's a great cause because, I mean, they're the real heroes so, I mean, to support that is really cool," said Sewell.
The race went from Memorial Park toward Founder's Park and back again.
