WASHINGTON — 4-year-old Kristopher Quander arrived at FedEx Field Saturday morning to a ceremony meant to honor him for his fight with the deadly brain disease.
The Prince George's County Police Department, in partnership with the Negro League Legends Hall of Fame and the Washington Football team, made him an honorary officer as well as the event's Grand Marshall.
So, what does that look like? Well, for Kristofer, that meant a "Salute Ride" all around the Capital Beltway and a ceremony right at FedEx Field to help support the new "officer."
The event also commemorated the 100th year anniversary of the Negro League Legends Hall of Fame and also featured a 495 Beltway Salute ride to celebrate the centennial.
