Deputy Saul Gallegos Memorial Run

3K/5K Fun Walk -- 5K/10K Run

 

OUR HERO POLICE OFFICERS RISK THEIR LIVES EVERY DAY TO PROTECT AND SERVE US. 

THEY ARE SUBJECTED TO STRESSES, PRESSURES, AND DANGERS THAT FEW OF US COULD EVEN IMAGINE.

THEY ARE FATHERS, BROTHERS, SONS, UNCLES.....

THEY ARE MOTHERS, SISTERS, DAUGHTERS, AUNTS.....

YOU GO TO WORK IN A SUIT AND TIE AND CARRY A BRIEF CASE.....
THEY GO TO WORK WITH A BULLET PROOF VEST, PEPPER SPRAY, AND GLOCKS STRAPPED TO THEIR WAIST.....

YOU WORK AT A DESK WITH A NICE COMFORTABLE CHAIR WITH A CORNER WINDOW ON THE 5TH FLOOR....
THEIR OFFICE HAS 4 WHEELS, 4 DOORS, LIGHTS AND SIRENS....

               POLICE OFFICERS ARE HUMAN JUST LIKE THE REST OF US .... THEY HAVE FAMILIES THEY COME HOME TO

AND CHILDREN WAITING FOR THEM AT THE DOOR....

WHEN THE WEATHER IS AWFUL AND YOU STAY INSIDE DRINKING COFFEE OR HOT COCOA....
THEY ARE OUT THERE PROTECTING OTHER'S LIVES AND HELPING WHOEVER IS IN NEED...

PUTTING THEIR OWN SAFETY AT RISK.....

IN THE RAIN.....

OR THE SNOW....

EVEN HURRICANES...

THEY ARE THERE...

THEY ARE THERE TO COMFORT YOU WHEN TRAGEDY STRIKES.....

THEY ARE THERE TO COMFORT A LITTLE GIRL WHOSE MOTHER WAS JUST ARRESTED FOR SELLING HERSELF
ON A STREET CORNER, JUST SO SHE CAN PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE....

THEY ARE THE ONES WHO MAKE SURE YOU'RE SAFE ON YOUR WAY TO YOUR VACATION IN CANCUN .....

AND SOME OFFICERS MAKE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE....

THEY RISK IT ALL TO SAVE ANOTHER....OR A FELLOW BROTHER....

"OFFICER DOWN, OFFICER NEEDS HELP" ARE WORDS THAT CAN CHANGE LIVES FOREVER---

WORDS THAT REMAIN EVER PRESENT AND IRREMOVABLE IN THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF THE POLICE FAMILY.

WE WILL FOREVER BE THANKFUL FOR ALL THEY HAVE DONE....

WE SALUTE YOU....


PLEASE HONOR OUR POLICE HEROS...

WITHOUT THEM .... WHAT WOULD OUR COUNTRY BECOME?!?!

They may be lost, but they are NEVER forgotten.
