Some K-9s were on the run Sunday to help the families of  fallen heroes.

Sixteen canines from police departments as far away as Wilmington, Del., participated in the third annual K-9 competition at Salisbury High School in Lehigh County.

Dogs competed in a wide variety of categories, including agility and speed.

The proceeds raised from the event will benefit fallen police officers.
