People in our area came out to remember Corporal Chuck Smith, a Beckley Police officer, who was shot and killed during an undercover drug investigation in August of 2009.

The 7th Annual Corporal Chuck Smith Memorial Race was held Saturday at the YMCA Sports Complex in Beckley.

The event was a 5K and 10K race to honor and remember Corporal Smith.

All proceeds from the event help promote healthy, drug-free lifestyles for children in Southern West Virginia, through active participation at the YMCA.
