SALISBURY — The Salisbury Police Department is hosting a 5K fundraiser run on June 3 to assist with medical bills for longtime officer Wiley Lamm.
Lamm was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year and has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
The “Wun For Wiley” will begin at 2 p.m. at Knox Middle School.
The entry fee is $20 to register for the 5K. A second “fun run” race will follow. Registration for the second race is $10.
Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said two or three officers organized it, but the entire department will be assisting in the event. Gerry Wood Auto Center is sponsoring the event. “Everybody wants to help, and there’s not a whole lot you can do, so this is one way they can express the help and support during these times like that,” Lingle said.
Lamm worked for the Salisbury Police Department for more than 19 years. Over the last few years, he served as a victim advocacy officer.
Lingle said she’s already received registrations for the event and expects a good turnout.
“We’ve had a lot of people contact us already. We just sent out an email through the city today,” Lingle said. “We anticipate a large turnout.”
Registration for the event will open at 12:30 p.m. the day of the race. Participants can also register online at www.sportoften.com and www.salisburyrowanrunners.org
