The 8th Annual Officer Donald J Hassiak Memorial 5K was held yesterday.  A scholarship fund was established at Immaculate High School to honor Hassiak, a 1987 graduate, after the 16-year veteran of the Danbury Police Department was killed by a drunk driver in a  hit and run crash in 2010.  Coach Brian Hayes, also a Danbury Police Officer,  agreed to have the proceeds donated to the fund from the Turkey Trot, which he started in 2007 with the Cross Country team.
