A 10-mile Law Enforcement Memorial Run is being planned for June 8 to honor Deputy William Mast Jr., killed in the line of duty in 2012.
The run is expected to begin at 7:30 a.m. the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and end at the Blowing Rock Police Department. Along the way, it will pass by the Appalachian State University Police Department and the Boone Police Department.
After the run, a celebration including a band, refreshments, games and activities will be held at Memorial Park.
The run is expected to receive assistance from all High Country law enforcement agencies. Proceeds from the event will benefit Mast’s widow and son.
The Blowing Rock Town Council unanimously approved a request Tuesday night for the town to participate.
