    I would like to formally invite everyone to an upcoming fundraiser/5K run being held in remembrance of the sacrifice made by D-57, Senior Trooper Steven Vincent. This 5K run will raise money to ensure our Trooper's Charities will continue to have funding to provide Level 4 ballistic vests to all new Troopers upon graduation from the Louisiana State Police Training Academy. This event will also continue to fund our Louisiana Trooper's Charities - Troop D, Grant a Wish, and local philanthropic programs. The race is a team event with teams of all sizes expected to participate. Teams may name their team and dress in appropriate costumes with a prize being awarded for the best team costume. The course will go through and around the Golden Nugget / L'auberge casino areas. First responders and military teams are encouraged to run in uniform to show respect for Steven's sacrifice.

    This 5K is a team event. Teams can range from 1 to 30 members, and the teams will register and pay online. The entry fee is $500 per team. If a check is mailed to Troop D, I will send the team captain a coupon code to enter his/her team into the online site.
    There will be no cost for active or retired troopers that wish to run or help in the event. Free coupons can be issued to local first responders that wish to participate and do not have a sponsor.
