This 5K and Benefit is to provide help and support for our local police officer, Mark Ayers.
He was shot and paralyzed June 29, 2006 in the line of duty.
It is our mission to support this hero of Olive Branch by raising money to fund the purchase of a new van with a wheelchair lift.
Give back to the Heroes that protect our local community.
