BECKLEY - Family, friends and supporters put on their running shoes to remember a fallen Beckley police officer.
The 7th annual Corporal Chuck Smith Memorial Race got underway Saturday morning. Participants could walk or run a 5k or a 10k course, and it is all in honor of Corporal Chuck Smith who was killed in the line of duty seven years ago while working in the narcotics unit. Smith's mother says that this race shows what her son's legacy is all about. Proceeds from the event go to help kids get scholarships for YMCA memberships.
