The inaugural Zackari Parrish 5K run or walk will be held at the Douglas County Event Center, 500 Fairgrounds Road, Castle Rock, from 9 a.m. to noon on Feb. 3. The run is capped at 3,000 participants, but the organizers encourage the community to attend to cheer on the runners.
Proceeds of the event benefit the county's Fallen Officer Fund, a tax-exempt charitable organization that provides assistance to Douglas County Sheriff's Office deputies who are killed or seriously injured in the line of duty, as well as the Parrish family.
Parrish, a 29-year-old deputy, was responding to a domestic dispute at a residence in the Copper Canyon Apartments, 3380 E. County Line Road, in Highlands Ranch, the morning of Dec. 31 when he was shot and killed. He leaves behind a wife and two young daughters.
Though the race is closed, community members are invited to a free Douglas County Lifestyle Expo from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., also at the Douglas County Event Center. The event showcases more than 50 businesses and nonprofit organizations in the county.
