Police Officer Mark Uffelman, shot in the arm last summer while chasing a thug in South Philly, was one of the three fastest police officers in Saturday's inaugural Badges of Honor 5k, a benefit run for the police/fire/emergency workers' survivors fund.
Fastest cop was ID'd as Frederick Straub, who covered the course in 18:57. Uffelman, 52, ran it in 20:02. Michael Schlosser was third at 21:22.
The police officers' top three times were faster than those of the top three firefighters and corrections officers, so they get bragging rights. The race raised at least $50,000, said organizer John Bolaris. Nearly 2,000 runners, including 800 walk-ups, covered the course around Citizens Bank Park and through FDR Park. Official results are expected Monday.
