Highland Village gearing up for TXFallenPD Tribute Event

Police officers ride in a team bike race in the annual Highland Village Fallen Officers Bike Race and 5K.

The 11th Annual TXFallenPD Tribute Event is scheduled for Oct. 20 at The Shops at Highland Village, but more is in the works during the week before that.

The TXFallenPD Tribute Event is a community event raising funds for the Texas Police Chiefs Association’s Fallen Officer Fund, which provides monetary assistance to the families of Texas Police Officers killed in the line of duty, according to a news release from the city of Highland Village. There are multiple opportunities to support the fund, which will honor the lives of those killed in the line of duty and encourage the men and women who continue to serve and protect.

Blue Line Saturday – Oct. 13

The Village Church is hosting an inter-denominational time of worship on Saturday from 3-5 p.m. in remembrance and honor of those who have been killed in the line of duty and in prayer for those who continue to serve and protect.

Restaurant Week – Oct. 14 through Oct. 20

Many Highland Village restaurants will be participating in Restaurant Week by donating a percentage of their sales to the Fallen Officer Fund. You can thank them for their commitment to our community by choosing to dine at these locations during Restaurant Week. Check out the calendar here.
