After the death of Winchester police officer Hunter Edwards, one of his fellow officers wanted to have something to remember him by.
Officer Kate Bracy reached out to the Abingdon, Md. company called Barbells and Badges, which runs the “Honor a Hero” project and sells memorial apparel to raise money for the families of fallen first responders.
The short and long-sleeve t-shirts cost between $20 and $25 and in a little over a week, the company has raised over $7,000 in proceeds for the Edwards family.
“For me, it was just, I knew I needed something more to hold on to when it came to Hunter,” Bracy said. “I just felt that maybe other people had the exact same feeling that I did.”
