BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - Brantley Ellison Fitness is holding a special memorial walk Sunday in honor of fallen Biloxi police officer, Robert McKeithen, the Biloxi Police Department and the sacrifices they’ve made for the community.
The walk starts at 7 a.m.
The 12.6 mile walk will honor McKeithen and his time as an officer before he was killed. Ellison chose 12.6 miles because McKeithen wore badge #126. The walk goes from Jones Park to the Biloxi Town Green. Walkers are more than welcomed to walk at a shorter pace if needed.
Participants will gather at Sal & Mookie’s afterwards for refreshments.
The event is free and open to the public.
