On November 16th, local officers and civilians alike took part in a 5K race that celebrated police officers that put their lives on the line to protect our families and honor those who have fallen in the line of duty.
The Officers Down walk/run was held on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, and our law firm was honored to be able to sponsor this great occasion. All proceeds and donations will benefit the Officers Down Memorial Page and their mission, as well as the Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II Memorial Fund.
Cpl. Dickson, 38, was killed in an ambush on the Blooming Grove barracks in Pike County, PA on September of 2014, which led to a 7-week manhunt that successfully apprehended his killer.
This wonderful association has raised money for a number of organizations and also serves to honor and remember those who gave their lives for the safety and protection of their communities.
