Fallen Agents Memorial 5K Run and Kids 1 Mile Fun Run – June 8, 2013
Published on May 15th, 2013
This race honors Border Patrol Agent Roberto J. Duran who was killed when his patrol vehicle overturned while he was on patrol on Federal Route 15 in Arizona.
After Agent Duran’s tragic and untimely death, Border Patrol Agents from the Chula Vista Border Patrol Station decided that the best way to honor and remember Agent Duran was to create a college scholarship in his name. These agents created The Roberto J. Duran Scholarship Foundation, a non-profit organization that has given scholarships in his name since 2003. Agent Duran was respected for strength and compassion for the people in the San Ysidro community. It just made sense to continue his legacy of “giving something back” to the community he served.
The money for these scholarships has come from generous donations, proceeds from the Combined Federal Campaign, and proceeds from the annual Roberto Duran 5K Run along the United States and Mexico international boundary.
