On September 15th, 2016, Trooper Kenneth Velez unit # 511, 27-year veteran of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Cleveland Post was killed in the line of duty after being struck by a passing vehicle outside of his patrol car, while conducting traffic enforcement on the 90 interstate in Cleveland, OH.  Trooper Velez, 48 years old was just a few days from retirement. Kenny was an avid sports fan, very involved father of three, and was great and fair person in and out of his uniform.

In honor of his lifetime of service, the friends and family are bringing back the TKV5K / 1 mile fun walk in order to raise awareness for the many emergency personnel working on our Ohio roadways. Proceeds from this event will be placed in a memorial fund and will assist in continuing this event and others annually.   

We hope you can join us!
