Law enforcement recruits and members of the SUNY Broome community ran through the campus, up a steep hill behind the Broome County Sheriff’s Office and then through an obstacle course for the first Hornets Run the Hill event on April 13.
Fifteen SUNY Broome students, faculty and staff members competed, along with 37 recruits from the neighboring law enforcement academy — many of them SUNY Broome graduates — and County Executive Jason Garnar, who laced up his sneakers for the run. Assisting were seven volunteers from CJESSA, three from the Hospitality Programs Club and multiple individuals from the law enforcement academy.
Participants swung on the monkey bars, surmounted walls and ladders, and navigated giant tires and more during the course of the run. All proceeds from the event benefited the Wes Warren Scholarship fund.
This event was sponsored by the Criminal Justice & Emergency Services Student Association in collaboration with the Broome County Sheriff Regional Law Enforcement Academy, with special thanks to the Hospitality Programs Club and Public Safety for assisting with the event.
