Jim - B2V

My son Jim is a police officer with the Sacramento police department. He is a part of one several teams from Sacramento who participated in the “Baker to Vegas” relay also known as the “B2V” on April 1st and 2nd. This is the 20th anniversary of the Challenge Cup Relay starting in Baker, California the gateway to Death Valley. The teams run 120 miles in twenty stages, through the Mojave Desert and mountains to Las Vegas, Nevada. The teams must consist only of law enforcement officers, police, sheriff, judges, etc., and they provide their own support services, logistics, and communications.

Jim ran leg 11 at 1:00 AM on 4-2-06.

Now is he spending a day resting with his friends and coworkers in Las Vegas before returning home and to the job he loves.

He did get to spend a little time with his sister Kelly and she got to meet all his friends.

I am proud of my son Jim for participating and of all his friends for taking part in this event.
