      The First National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial 5K Race
      (WASHINGTON, DC) - Every day, law enforcement officers put
      their lives on the line for the safety and protection of others. On
      Sunday, October 19, 2008, the community has a chance to show its
      appreciation for officers' service and sacrifice by participating in
      the "Race to Remember"-the first National Law Enforcement Officers
      Memorial 5K.

      Organized by the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington, DC,
      the race begins at 8:30 a.m., at the National Law Enforcement
      Officers Memorial in downtown DC. The event benefits the National
      Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a DC-based not-for-profit
      that honors U.S. law enforcement, in particular officers who have
      died in the line of duty.

      The 5K course spans the streets of our Nation's Capital, taking
      runners past such cherished landmarks as the U.S. Capitol, Supreme
      Court, Library of Congress and the National Mall. Transponder timing
      operated by Capital Running Company will be used to score the 5K
      race. A variety of prizes, including unique law enforcement-related
      merchandise, will be awarded, and there will be refreshments and
      give-aways.

      The Memorial Fund maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers
      Memorial, which contains the names of 18,274 officers who have died
      in the line of duty throughout U.S. history. All proceeds from
      the "Race To Remember" benefit the Memorial Fund's latest project-
      creation of the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum
      (www.LawEnforcementMuseum.org), which will be located adjacent to
      the Memorial in Washington, DC's Judiciary Square.
