Dozens of people had good reason to get up early Sunday morning, as they got in a good workout and honored a fallen BART police officer in Union City.
The group raised money for Sgt. Tommy Smith Jr. With a fundraising workout. Fellow officers from several local police departments were on hand for the event
"It kind of affected the Newark department," fundraising participant Freddy Camacho said. "They have a family member who works there. Also, Hayward department and of course BART PD. We're all brothers working locally, so we decided to put the fundraiser on for the family."
Sgt. Smith's wife and 6-year-old daughter attended Sunday's event.
Smith was a 23-year veteran with the BART Police Department. He also served 12 years with the Moraga Police Department.
