In memory of fallen Bellaire Police Officer Marco Zarate, community members and law enforcement officials will participate in the Five-O 5K Run. Runners of all levels are encouraged to dress up in their best Halloween costumes and compete or run for fun. Awards will be presented for the top three masters in their category and best costumes. The run is being hosted by the Harris County Constables Office, Precinct 1. Monies raised through this event will go on to benefit nearly 10,000 SOTX athletes in the Greater Houston area.
Officer Zarate passed away after an on-duty motorcycle accident on July 12, 2016. He was a devoted member of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, and over the last five years he participated in every LETR fundraiser that was in the Houston area.
