Hi my name is Matthew Cordova and this will be my fifth year participating in the Baker 2 Vegas Relay team as a Deputy U.S. Marshal. The USMS Baker to Vegas Running Team is comprised of 20 runners and support crew from all across the country that participate in a 120 mile relay competition to honor those who have fallen in the line of duty. Each and every year that I have had the privilege of being able to participate and represent my agency has been very rewarding. It's a relay race in which over a 150 Law Enforcement teams from across the country and internationally come together to compete and pay their respect to those fallen brothers/sisters that have given the ultimate sacrifice.
This year is the first year that we are asking for support from our community, friends, and family to come together and help contribute to the US Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund (SBF). The USMS SBF provides resources to families in need when a loved one falls in the line of duty as well as providing economic support to programs dedicated to preseving the memory of fallen Marshal heros.
The Baker 2 Vegas Relay race will take place March 28-29 and I will be running leg 11 which consist of 5.3 miles. Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile page.
