Proceeds from Run with the Law to Help Families of Fallen Officers
EDINBURG - Supporters from across the Valley joined the Run with the Law event Saturday.
The run of solidarity for those who have fallen in the line of duty.
The focus of Saturday's event changed direction when Corporal Jose "speedy" Espericueta passed Thursday.
Steven Cruz with Crossfit Grande Valley explained, "some of the proceeds that they raised will be going to officer Espericueta, the fallen officer just to hear that and to know that they're trying to help out as well it was a no brainer (sic) for us to jump in and help out."
This is the first year Run with the Law was held.
