Corbett’s family, friends and fellow officers wanted to memorialize him, as well as his love of running and passion for the city’s schools. Corbett had been a student at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts and was a track captain at Holy Cross High School. Race organizers, including his family and police, established the 5K and the Christopher D. Corbett Memorial Fund to honor him.
