LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (LEX 18) - A Lawrenceburg family lost their son in the line of duty two years ago. They’re hoping to keep his memory alive and help the community with a 5k later this summer.

The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg was a special place for fallen trooper Eric Chrisman. He graduated from the school. In just a few weeks, it will be the site of a 5k in his honor.

Trooper Chrisman died two years ago while he was working. Police say he was checking out reports of a reckless driver in western Kentucky when he was hit and killed by a semi. He was 23-years-old at the time of his death and had only been with the state police for two months. But despite the short period of time, his friends say he made quite the impact on his community. His loved ones want to keep that going by hosting a 5k to raise money for scholarships.

“We want to go on with some of his hopes and dreams and help fulfill children that may not have the money to go to college,” said Dawn Chrisman, Eric’s Mom.

The 5k is set for September 9. His family hopes more runners will sign up.The more runners that participate, the more kids from this school benefit and get to go to college.
