The Love is Light 5K kicked off this morning, honoring the son of Judge Esther Salas, who was killed last year at their home.
The money raised will go toward scholarships at St. Joseph's High School in Metuchen, where Daniel Anderl graduated from.
According to authorities, Anderl, 20, was shot and killed by Roy Den Hollander, who was targeting Anderl's mother, Judge Salas, at her home in North Brunswick.
The FBI says Hollander had a dossier on Salas and knew information such as where she lived and went to church. Two weeks after her son died, Salas implored those in power to do something to protect judges like her and their families.
Anderl was a student at Catholic University and planned to study law.
