5K run will benefit injured RPD officer

January 3, 2014 • Local News

The Steve Meredith 5K Fun Run to benefit Sgt. Steve Meredith, who was injured in the line of duty, will be held on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Cielo Grande, 1612 W. College Blvd. The race will encompass two loops or trails. The first track is about 1 mile long while the second is 2 miles. Runners will follow the first smaller path and end with the large track.

Amanda Mason, whose husband is a police officer, said: “Sometimes, people forget just how dangerous this job can be.”

Meredith was on duty at the time he was injured on Oct. 21, 2013. He was helping to barricade a section of Hwy. 285 while officials conducted an investigation, when a commercial vehicle plowed into another vehicle, which was legally stopped at the road block, killing the driver whose truck then careened into the median strip and hit the Roswell Police Department sergeant. Meredith was flown out of state for treatment. His condition was listed as critical. However, he is on the mend.
