BUFFALO, NEW YORK; October 5, 2005 - The ECMC Lifeline Foundation will hold its ninth annual 5K Run & Healthwalk fund-raiser in Delaware Park, Buffalo, New York, on Saturday, October 8, 2005.

5K Run & Healthwalk law enforcement returning honorees and run competitors for 2005, are Lockport Police Officer Steven D. Ritchie, Lockport Police Captain Lawrence M. Eggert, and Jamestown Police Detective David Mitchell.

Eggert and Ritchie were injured in the line of duty in February of 2003, during a gun battle with a man they pursued for shooting a Lockport bar patron and riddling a building with bullets with a semi-automatic weapon. Both officers were injured and treated by ECMC emergency/trauma teams. Ritchie was brought to ECMC in critical condition. This year, as returning honorees, both Ritchie (for second consecutive year) and Eggert (for third consecutive year) will be competing in the 5K event.

In September of 1999, after sustaining life-threatening injuries when shot in the line of duty, Mitchell was transported to ECMC for emergency, trauma care, and follow-up care. Jamestown Police Detective David Mitchell will participate once again in the run as a returning honoree for the sixth consecutive year.

Officers Ritchie, Eggert and Mitchell express their gratitude to emergency and trauma physicians, nurses, therapists and support staff for the care they received at ECMC. When asked to be involved in the 5K event to benefit ECMC, each of the officers agreed without hesitation to participate again.

The Lockport Police Department has issued a police department challenge to other Western New York police departments/officers to compete as "police teams" in the event.

Event competitions include the competitive run as well as a race-walk. Registration will be held just prior to the event, from 8:30 A.M. to 9:45 A.M., in a large tent adjacent to the Delaware Park Parkside Lodge. The healthwalk will start at 10:00 A.M., and the run (including the race-walk) will begin at 10:30 A.M. The adult entry fee is $18 per person. Children's (under age 12) entry fee is $5 each. The adult fee includes registration, a long sleeve T-shirt for all adult runners and walkers, food and refreshments, and opportunities to win door prizes at the post-run party to be held in and around a large tent in an area adjacent to the Delaware Park Parkside Lodge.

The course is USA Track & Field certified and designated as a "South Buffalo Athletic Association/Runner's Roost Runner of the Year Series" event. Prizes for the run will be awarded to the overall female and male winners, as well as the first three male and female winners in each of 16 age groups.

To register, or for more information, call ECMC Lifeline Foundation executive coordinator Joan Lillis, RN, at 716-898-5885.

The mission of the ECMC Lifeline Foundation (an independent, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation) is to assist Erie County Medical Center Corporation in procuring the resources needed to become Western New York's hospital of choice through excellence in patient care and customer service.
