Around 75 runners participated in the Back the Blue 5k Fun Run Saturday morning at Trinity School in Texarkana, Ark.

The 5k raises funds for the Texarkana, Ark. Police Association.  Funds are used for multiple events throughout the year, such as the Sam Tirrito Memorial Scholarship, cops and kids christmas dinner, shop with a cop, and more.

Texarkana Arkansas School District won the award for most students participating.
