Benefit For Slain Officer’s Family

Associated Press - January 2, 2015 7:33 am

Topeka police are sponsoring a benefit for a Kansas corporal killed in the line of duty.

A ‘Zumbathon’ is scheduled for 2-4 p.m. Jan. 17 at Washburn University’s Lee Arena for Cpl. Jason Harwood’s family.

Harwood was making a car stop Sept. 7 when Ross Preston Lane opened fire on him. Lane was charged with capital murder for 15-year police veteran’s death.

Attendees at the fundraiser will participate in a Zumba-style, dance-inspired workout. A $5 minimum donation is suggested.

The money will pay for Cpl. Jason Harwood’s family to travel to Washington, D.C. for a workshop made to support families who have experienced similar tragedies.
