ROSCOE, Ill. (WTVO) — Hundreds braved the cold Saturday Morning to run a 5K in honor of fallen Rockford Police Officer, Jaimie Cox.

This is the second year for the run.

The Cox Family says this is a way to fundraise in honor of Jaimie Cox, Jaimie’s way.

Officer Cox was killed in 2017 when he pulled Eddie Patterson over for a traffic stop that ended up taking both of their lives.
