Today, I am happy to anounce that I will be a sponsor photographing the upcoming Officer Besser Memorial Sunshine 5k on May 14. This is a family fun run in honor of a fallen police officer, raising funds for Backing the Blue Line and the Officer Besser Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Officer Besser died tragically in 2015 by unbelievable violent circumstances. Despite the newsworthiness of his death, it is his life for which he will be remembered and on which his legacy stands. Officer Todd Besser was a United States Air Force Veteran and served the Elk River Police Department for 16 years. He was highly decorated, well respected and loved by all. He was well known for his "Good Morning Sunshine" to everyone. His personal relationship with God gave him a positive, happy outlook on life that was infectious to everyone he interacted with.
This May will be the first in an annual event called the Sunshine 5k - raising funds for Backing the Blue Line and a new Officer Besser Memorial Scholarship Fund. It is an honor to be able to serve this event and I look forward to photographing the volunteers, participants and program this day along with my team. You can learn more about this event and join me this day by registering here!
If you would like to make a donation to this great event, or become a sponsor, that would be awesome, too!
