5K race to help family of fallen officer Chase Maddox

The Locust Grove community will run this weekend in honor of fallen officer Chase Maddox.

Funds raised through The Chase 5K will help with his wife and children's immediate and future needs.

Maddox was fatally shot, and two Henry County deputies were wounded, when a man opened fire on them earlier this month.

On Saturday, there will be a special ceremony held before the race in front of the Locust Grove city offices.

The race begins at 8 a.m.
