Police Sergeant to walk 163 miles to honor fallen – PR 19-05

North Richland Hills Sergeant set to walk 163 miles to Texas State Capitol in honor of those killed in the line of duty in 2018.

Police Sergeant, Brent Wright, is training for an endeavor like none other – a “Walk of Reflection.” Beginning April 27, 2019 he will walk for several days on a journey to the Peace Officers’ Memorial at the Texas Capitol. The 148 mile trek will take him south from the metroplex, along the I-35 corridor where he is scheduled to reach his destination on Saturday, May 4th.

With the senseless killings of many officers across our nation, Sergeant Wright felt a calling to find a way to honor those officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice through their service in 2018. This led him to start a charity, Walk of Reflection. Sergeant Wright is not only walking to remember those lost, but to raise money for Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) and Alliance for Children, Tarrant County.

With the support of the North Richland Hills Police Department, Texas DPS and many others along the way, he is eager to share his journey. His updates will be posted via his Facebook page (A Walk of Reflection), and via our department social media.

Donations to the cause are being accepted via his website-www.walkofreflection.com
