2nd Annual “Ricky” 267 5K Run/Walk & Kids Fun Run

The “Ricky” 5k Run Event  memorializes the untimely passing within months of each other of  three outstanding individuals of the Union City Police Department, Officer Ricky Fernandez ★ Lt. Mark Zeitounian ★ Officer John Kamel.  It is with a heavy heart that we will also be memorializing the recent passing of yet another member of the Union City Police Department ★Lt. Gregory Katseyanis. These four law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of our community. They serve with the most highest integrity and honor  and with great success. In their memory, through the proceeds of the 5K, we would like to give a scholarship to a student in Union City, NJ pursuing a career in law enforcement. The scholarship will be to inspire and help others to serve as law enforcement in their own community as Ricky, Mark, John and Gregory.
