Three Haverhill police officers were recognized Tuesday night for completing a half marathon last month in honor of fallen law enforcement officers.

Acknowledged for running the marathon while in full gear were Sgt. Andrea Fogarty, Officer William Mears and Officer Katelyn Tully. City Councilor Mary Ellen Daly O’Brien spoke directly to two of the officers.

“I can’t help but notice two of you are women, and that makes me very proud. That’s what Haverhill’s all about. You’re an example of what young women can do and aspire to,” she said.

At the City Council meeting Tuesday, Capt. Robert P. Pistone presented the three officers who recently completed the “Law Enforcement Run to Remember.” The run is sponsored by the Boston Police Department to remember police officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. Of 13,000 runners in the race, only nine took on the challenge of running the race in their full equipment, with three of those hailing from Haverhill.

The Council lauded the officers for the accomplishment, and Councilor Joseph J. Bevilacqua presented each with citations.
