On Saturday, May 17, 2014, the Seventeenth Judicial District Access to Justice Committee and the Colorado Bar Association will present the 6th Annual Sean May Memorial Run at Barr Lake State Park, 13401 Piccadilly Road in Brighton. There will be three races on Saturday: a nine mile run, a 5K run, and a family fun run/walk.

The run is held each year in honor of Sean May, a deputy district attorney from the Seventeenth Judicial District who championed personal responsibility, including treating victims, the community, defendants, and the courts with dignity and respect. During his seven years of service in Adams County, May volunteered for the Child Victim Unit, where he pursued justice for children who had been physically and/or sexually abused. May died on August 27, 2008, when he was shot in his backyard when returning from work. At the time of his death, he was responsible for training and supervising new prosecutors.

Proceeds from the run will benefit Access to Justice programs and activities, as well as May’s family. Past proceeds have benefitted the Self-Help Resource Center at the Adams County Justice Center, which provides computers, information, and staff to help people with legal and procedural questions. Since its opening on January 5, 2011, the Self-Help Resource Center has aided hundreds of people, and it serves as a model of efficiency for other agencies.

Registration is available online, or participants can register on race day at Barr Lake State Park.
