APD bringing back annual run to honor fallen officer, aid current one
Albany police need your help to honor one of their fallen officers while helping out one of their current ones.
APD is hosting the second annual Terry Lewis-Flemming 5K, Fun Walk and Dice Run on Saturday, Oct. 21.
The event begins at 8 a.m. on Albany State's west campus and features the five-kilometer run, a one-mile walk and the dice run, in which motorcyclists will ride between all of Dougherty County's law enforcement agencies, roll dice and win prizes.
The event is named in honor of Cpl. Terry Lewis-Flemming, a former Albany police officer who was killed in a car accident in 2011 while chasing armed robbers.
This year, part of the proceeds will benefit Lt. O.C. Conley, one of APD's veteran officers who is currently in need of a kidney transplant.
Sgt. Phyllis Smith, who worked with and was friends with Flemming, said this is a great way to pay tribute to her.
"She was all about community helping and relations," Smith said. "She was all about giving. And she was always thinking about her coworkers, so we know that she'd be wanting to do something for him in this time of need."
You can register on the day of the event or in advance by clicking here.
Registration fees for the 5K and Dice Run are $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the race. For the Fun Walk, it's $15.
