FAIRFIELD — A mobile after-school recreational program in Fairfield has earned recognition from regional health care giant Kaiser Permanente as the Officer Jim Capoot Community Partner of the Year.

Fun on the Run, a free, joint venture between the Fairfield Community Services Foundation and the city, took top honors and a $5,000 prize during the Kaiser Permanente in the Community regional event May 20 in Vacaville.

The award, in its third year, is named for Vallejo police officer and Vacaville resident James Capoot, who was shot and killed in November 2011 while pursuing a bank robbery suspect. His accused killer faces the death penalty in a case that’s making its way through Solano County Superior Court.

Fun on the Run delivers various recreational and healthy food offerings to children in low-income areas of the city.

“Many of Fun on the Run’s participants live in multifamily, subsidized housing and are considered socio-economically disadvantaged and at-risk for engaging in unhealthy or risky behaviors,” said Sandy Rusch, medical group administrator for Kaiser Permanente in the Napa-Solano area, in a press release. “The program provides access to safe environments and promotes safe play and physical activity as well as teaching kids how to eat healthy.”

First runner-up went to the COPE Family Center in Napa. Planned Parenthood Shasta-Diablo received second runner-up honors. Both received $2.500.

Fun on the Run also received a $15,000 grant from Kaiser Permanente, one of 41 regional organizations that received a combined $800,000.

Ten area high school students received $1,000 Jim Capoot scholarships, also presented May 20.

    The monster that shot and killed Capoot should be dead already. I can't believe this happened in 2001 and it's still going through the courts 13 years later or whatever it's been. It's just rediculas these cases go on forever when the person is clearly guilty!!!

    @JBDragon and CD Brooks: That was a typographical error. Officer Capoot was shot and killed in November 2011. I apologize for the error.
