BROOKLYN - A Gravesend school is honoring one of New York's finest with its first 4K run.

Dozens came out Sunday to participate in the first annual Magen David Yeshivah Police Officer Jeff Herman Memorial 4K Family Fun Run/Walk.

The school recently noticed that the park across the street, where hundreds of its students play every day, was named after Officer Jeff Herman, who died on the job 25 years ago while responding to a domestic violence call. When school officials made the realization, they decided to honor Herman's efforts.

Herman's wife, mother and son, who was only a couple months old when his father died, were all present at the race.

Herman's softball team also hosts an annual game in his honor in the same park.
