Dear Prospective Sponsor,

On June 8, 2019 friends and family of Deputy United States Marshal Derek Hotsinpiller will be hosting the 9th Annual Fallen Stars Memorial 5K Race to honor his dedication and commitment to serving and protecting our community.  While serving a warrant in Elkins, West Virginia, on February 16, 2011, Derek was taken from his loved ones too soon.  Derek's friends and family have initiated a scholarship in his honor so that he will forever be remembered and honored as a DUSM, a beloved son, brother, nephew, brother-in-law, uncle, soul mate, and lifelong member of the Bridgeport community.

To date, over $100,000 in scholarships has been awarded to over thirty-seven (37) individuals who have demonstrated strong leadership skills among their peers as well as within the community. Due to the generosity of our sponsors and commitment of our participants, we are proud to announce that the Scholarship Directors have decided to offer the scholarship to students not only in Harrison County, but also to all thirty-three (33) counties served by the United States Marshal Service of the Northern District of West Virginia. Scholarships are also available to college and university students completing their sophomore year and Law Enforcement Officers pursing degrees in Criminal Justice.


This event has always had overwhelming support from the community, which includes: scholarship winners, volunteers, and sponsors.  Our race hosts between 400 - 600 participants each year, (A HUGE SUCCESS!!!) in memory of all fallen Heroes and in support of our Law Enforcement Officers currently serving.  Our goal is not only to award new scholarships, but to give all recipients the opportunity to apply for renewal of their scholarship through their senior year.

We invite sponsors to join us on June 8, 2019, in Bridgeport for this important event.  There will be space available for your business to set up a booth, advertise, or demonstrate products.  If your business has any printed advertising items that you would like placed into the runner packets, if you get those to us we will include them.   Your business will also be recognized in printed materials and advertising for this event (i.e. digital sign, lawn signs, race banners, race web site, runner’s packets, etc.).  Our t-shirts include the race logo on the front and on the back is a list of law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty within the last year. Displayed on one sleeve is Derek’s badge number 4595 and the opposite sleeve will be available for a corporate sponsor or sponsors.


In advance, the race committee would like to extend their sincere thanks for your support and taking the time to read this letter.  If you would like more information on the Derek Hotsinpiller Fallen Star Memorial 5K Run, please visit: www.BridgeportTrack.com/DHFS5K.
