From Aug. 6 to 8, the Porter County Sheriff's Department had a team of four walk in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for a Cure in Chicago. The team walked 60 miles and raised more than $15,000.

"We walked for those who had lost someone to breast cancer; we walked for those who couldn't walk. We walked, because we couldn't walk away," said Tristan Kehle, captain of the department's Cops for a Cure team.

The team logged a few hundred miles in training and hosted several fundraisers, as well as asking local businesses for support.

Sheriff David Lain offered support by donating and purchasing the team's shirts, sweatshirts and hats.

"Our community never ceases to amaze me with its constant support and generosity," Lain said.
