Sean May

The 8th Annual Sean May Memorial Run/Walk will be held at Barr Lake State Park on Saturday, May 7, 2016. Each year, the 17th Judicial District Access to Justice Committee hosts the Sean May Memorial Run/Walk to commemorate Sean May, a deputy district attorney from the 17th 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.

This year’s event will feature a 9 mile run, a 5K, and a family fun run/walk at beautiful Barr Lake State Park. The course passes by several wildlife viewing stations and the park’s wildlife refuge. More than 350 species of birds have been spotted in the park. Numerous bald eagles winter at Barr Lake and one pair stays to nest and raise its young every year. Registration opens at 7:30 am, and the 9 mile run starts at 9 am, followed by the 5K at 9:15 and the fun run after that. Register online or at the race.
