VANCOUVER-- Rebecca Watson spent the 4th of July holiday in a Felida Park booth, registering runners and walkers for a special event in her late son's name.

Jackie Cy drowned while on a family vacation in California when he was just three years old.

Less than a year after the tragedy, Watson has organized a fun run with all the proceeds going to Clark County Fire District 6.

They are going to use those funds to purchase a new Freddie theFiretruck, which teaches children all over the county about fire safety, said Watson. And my little boy's name will be on the side of the fire truck.

Watson said she will likely never feel comfortable talking about the tragedy, but she wants to thank the Felida community for the incredible love and support her family has received since their son's death.

More information about taking part in the Jackie Cy 5K Run on Sunday, is posted online.
