On May 28th, the Cadets from Class 292 participated in the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire’s 11th Annual Savannah Mile.
The race is a one-mile run through downtown Savannah. The event also includes a memory walk dedicated to those that have died in the line of duty and their families. The final event of the day is the Heroes Heat, in which members of area law enforcement, fire service, and the military dress out in their uniforms and gear and run the Savannah Mile.
The GPSTC cadets were on site to provide assistance during the event and to participate in the race. Cadets Witzer Sylla and Darren Bradshaw, both of Savannah Chatham Metro PD, placed in their respective age groups.
The event benefited the charitable efforts of the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire. This organization’s mission is to provide immediate financial assistance to the surviving spouses and children of local law enforcement officers and firefighters who have lost their lives in the line-of-duty while protecting their communities.
Cadet Witzer Sylla (Savannah Chatham Metro PD) placed 3rd in his age group.
Cadet Darren Bradshaw (Savannah Chatham Metro PD) placed 3rd in his age group.
