INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s Recruiting Unit is hosting a memorial workout challenge in honor of fallen officer Breann Leath Thursday evening.
The event is free and held at IMPD’s Training Academy at 901 North Post Road.

It’s free to attend, but donations are welcomed to benefit Zayn’s Foundation, according to IMPD.
The event is organized by Officer Babacar Diouf, former field training officer for Leath. He used her name as an acronym: “Brave, Resilient, and Empowered like #BRE!”
Officer Diouf remembered several inspiring moments from his time training Leath, including her first day as a rookie.
“That very night I am receiving the officer of the month award for the North District. So she looked at me, shake my hand, said ‘I am Officer Leath, I’m with you today. But I see this is what I’ve got to live up to. I will get one of those one day.’ And surely, she did,” remembered Officer Diouf.
He also said she made him laugh, teaching him how to use Snapchat.
Officer Diouf says participants can sign up for the yellow or black workout.
The Yellow is a group workout. We will place participants in groups to share the workload. Black is an individual challenge
