There will be an event in Bargersville this weekend to honor the life of fallen State Police Trooper Aaron Smith.

According to Indiana State Police, the gym where Smith worked out with his wife is hosting a celebration of life for Smith with funds raised to benefit his family. Trooper say Smith was passionate about working out with his wife and the CGX Crossfit Gym is where he prepared for his roles as a state trooper and a member of the Indiana Nationl Guard.
