The Baton Rouge Police Department is hosting a 5-K run to honor a former officer and raise money for suicide awareness and prevention.
Organizers hope the Uphill Climb 5K will raise funds for suicide prevention, education and treatments for those affected by suicide and mental wellness.
Participants will start from the police department's headquarters and run through the neighborhood to the west of the headquarters then end with a half-mile run to the top of the five-story parking garage.
The competition, scheduled for September 21st, will be in honor of Cpl. Bryan Thompson who passed away March of last year.
