About This Activity

The Shafter Cinco de Mayo Committee is proud to present the Inaugural 5K Memorial Run and 2 Mile Honor Walk in memory of Staff Sergeant Ricardo "Ricky" Barraza.  Ricky graduated from Shafter High in 1999 and shortly after graduation enlisted in the Army and became an Army Ranger.  After serving a total of six tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ricky paid the ultimate sacrifice and was tragically killed in Iraq on March 18, 2006.

This year we honor Ricky and pay tribute to him on this 10th Anniversary of his death.  Please join us by participating in this Inaugural event.  Proceeds will benefit the Ricky Barraza Scholarship Fund at Shafter High School.
