The Fallen Trooper Run begins Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at Bagwell/Settle Field on the campus of Charleston Southern University. Troopers will be walking, running and taking donations for 24 continuous hours.
State Trooper Bob Beres, who organized the event, said all proceeds will be used to build a Memorial Wall, bearing the names of the 49 state highway patrolmen who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The memorial wall will be erected at the S.C. Highway Patrol headquarters in Blythewood. Beres said the wall will cost $20,000 to build.
