Fundraiser for Deputy Layman and Sgt. Valenzuela

On the morning of Nov. 5th, Sgt Jack Valenzuela and Deputy Robert Layman were assisting a stranded motorist on IH 45, when a motorist struck their patrol car which then struck the two deputies. Both were transported to the hospital for treatment.

Sgt. Valenzuela sustained minor injuries and was released from the hospital the same day, but still faces extended treatments and possibly surgical procedures to recover from his injuries. Deputy Layman however, suffered serious life threatening injuries and remains hospitalized. Deputy Layman has undergone multiple surgeries, and still has to endure a long road of therapy and rehab ahead.

Due to the extent of the injuries, their wives and families must provide care for them during recovery. In an effort to assist with the financial burden, as well as the upcoming holiday season, friends and coworkers are hosting a fundraiser for Deputy Layman and Sgt Valenzuela.

Please come out and support these brave men on Dec. 6th, 2014 from 11am until 4pm at the Bull Salas Park Friendship Center (21681 McCleskey Rd, New Caney, TX 77357).
