COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.-  Law enforcement and residents gathered for the 3rd Annual Safety Fair and 5k Fun Run Friday night.

The event is held every Memorial Day weekend and invites the golden gate community to mingle with Collier County deputies. It also serves as a time to recognize military members and law enforcement.

Lt. Rich Hampton says, "We have law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for their community and it's a great way to rally the community together."

Donations raised will send kids to summer camp where they will be given both literacy and life skill training.
