About This Activity

Proceeds from the Thomas LaValley 12.84 Run/Relay will help send two Shreveport police officers to the National Police Memorial in Washington D.C. When Thomas passed away, four officers never left his family’s side. They were there to comfort, support and escort Thomas’ mother, little brother and many aunts. The Shreveport Police Department usually sends two officers to Washington D.C. with the family of a fallen officer, but we’d like to help send all four. Thank you for your support.

Special Thanks: Chris Redford, Shreveport Police Department, Sportspectrum Race Management
