Annual 5k honors fallen officer

Come out and honor Corporal Christopher M. Shea on Sunday, October 1 during the annual Corporal Christopher M. Shea Memorial 5k.

Corporal Shea’s cruiser was struck head-on by a drunken driver on July 18, 2004, while in the line of duty.

Now in its thirteenth year, the 5k event raises money for high school graduates entering the fields of Law, Law Enforcement, and/or other Civil Service. All profits from the money raised are awarded as a scholarship to graduating seniors from Kittatinny Regional High School and other local area schools in honor of Corporal Christopher M. Shea.

The course is a double loop of the bucolic Swartswood State Park campgrounds. The race starts and finishes on the shores of Swartswood Lake.
