Event Description

This 2nd Annual 5K Memorial Run and 2 Mile Honor Walk in memory of Staff Sergeant Ricardo "Ricky" Barraza has found a new sponsor...Shafter American Legion Auxiliary Unit 213 has humbly accepted to become the new sponsor and rightfully so as an organization aimed at supporting Veterans.

Ricky graduated from Shafter High in 1999 and shortly after graduation enlisted in the Army and became an Army Ranger.  After serving a total of six tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ricky paid the ultimate sacrifice and was tragically killed in Iraq on March 18, 2006.
