KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A five K run will be held Saturday to honor the memory of a fallen Kalamazoo public safety officer. Officer Eric Zapata was killed in the line of duty in April of 2011 when he was shot by a suspect who later shot himself.

Now, the second annual EZ Memorial 5K Run/Walk will be held at Kalamazoo Community College to raise money for a scholarship fund set up in Zapata's memory. The Kalamazoo Public Safety Department's Tim Kozal says that the scholarship benefits those studying at local police academies.

The run starts at nine AM Saturday, rain or shine, and registrations are being taken at www.EZ5K.org .
