About This Activity

The Hyco Memorial 5K is being held to honor our fallen ACSO K9 hero, Hyco and to raise money for the ACSO K9 Unit.

On Wednesday October 21st 2015, Anderson County Deputies responded to a reported car-jacking in Townville. Deputies began looking for the stolen vehicle and spotted it on Highway 24. The vehicle eventually stopped and all the occupants bailed and began fleeing on foot near New Prospect Church Road. Deputy Surratt released K9 Hyco to give chase and one suspect turned and began firing gunshots at the Deputies and K9 Hyco. Hyco was determined to not let this continue and went full steam to stop this violent suspect, and was struck by gunfire while doing so. Deputy Surratt grabbed his injured partner and rushed to the emergency vet. Deputy K9 Hyco succumbed to a gunshot wound a short time after arriving at the hospital. Hyco, as you now patrol the Rainbow Bridge may you continue your vigilant watch over us all as we carry on in your Honor. We thank you for your service and for your sacrifice, We thank you for your life.  Rest In Peace K9 HYCO ... We Will Take It From Here.

The funds raised from the Hyco Memorial 5K will be used as needed to purchase items for the K9 team.  Items purchased from the funds raised by this race include (but not limited to) collars, leads, food, vet care and a custom fit ballistic vest. Our goal is to make sure these incredible dogs have the best equipment available while they work making sure our families, homes and property are safe and secure. This fund also pays for specific needs of the K9 handler such as specific training classes.
