Cassandra Day - The Middletown Press
Four hundred and 28 runners took part in the seventh annual Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Run 5K at the Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown, which included members of the New Haven, Middletown and New Britain police, as well as state police and civilians who traversed a 3.1-mile street course on Sunday morning. The benefit, which was held in honor of fallen officers around the state, including Middletown Police Sgt. George Dingwall, exceeded its goal, raising $15,785 for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Brad Overturf took first place at an even 18 minutes and the first woman to cross the finish line was Susanne Navas at 23:40.
