The Centanni-Cottle Memorial 5K Run and Walk was held to honor Lance Cpl. Rick Centanni and Sgt. Maj. Robert Cottle. Both Marines were killed in March 2010 by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.
"Today celebrate not only Lance Cpl. Centanni but also Sgt. Maj. Cottle, who gave their lives for our country and for us, but all others who have done the same and made the ultimate sacrifice," said Santa Ana police Sgt. Lorenzo Carrillo.
Centanni was a 19-year-old former football player at Esperanza High. Cottle was a 45-year-old SWAT officer with the LAPD.
