OK town to hold 5K in honor of fallen OK deputy

CASHION, OK (KSWO)- The town of Cashion will play host to a 5k next month to honor the Oklahoma deputy killed last week in the line of duty.

Logan County Deputy David Wade, who was killed while serving an eviction notice last week, held his first law enforcement job on the Cashion Police Department, where he worked for two years.

While the town was set to hold the memorial 5k to represent fallen officers before Wade's death, those in Cashion say his death changed their plans a bit.

"He was going to come out and hang out and spend the day with us. After Dave passed, we decided that all the proceeds that the town was supposed to get will now be going to his family," said Assistant Chief Joshua Rafferty with the Cashion Police Department.

Cashion officials say they are looking for more people to sign up for the race right now, and they are also looking for sponsors. The 5k is set to take place Saturday, May 6th.
