Dear Prospective Sponsor,

On June 10, 2017, friends and family of Deputy United States Marshal Derek Hotsinpiller will be hosting the 7th 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.

In the past, the James and Derek Hotsinpiller Scholarship Fund, Inc. provided scholarships only to Harrison County students that were planning to pursue a higher education degree in criminal justice.  As a result of last year’s event, The Board of Directors of the Scholarship Fund has been able to increase the number of available scholarships.  To date, $51,000 in scholarships been awarded to twenty-six (26) 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.

Last year this event had overwhelming support from the community which included: scholarship winners, volunteers, and sponsors.  Roughly 600 participants (A HUGE SUCCESS!!!) ran in memory of a fallen Hero.  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 10, 2017, 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. score board, 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.
