THE STORY:

This will be my first Ironman race.  I figured “go big or go home” and why not do one of the most challenging Ironman races, especially since it is local.

 

Being in the profession that I am, I have a Type A personality and need a plan.  And I knew that I needed something to keep me motivated, something to keep the drive alive.  To begin preparation for my journey, I started reading books, many of which stated triathletes fundraised for a charity of their choosing.  I thought that a fundraising goal would help keep a purpose in focus.  When I found out that I could raise funds for a charity that means the most to me, I thought long and hard.  While driving around in my patrol car, it came upon me…the Officer Down Memorial Page.

 

In January 2012 I was enrolled in the Zone 5 Law Enforcement Regional Training Academy.  I was hired by the University at Albany Police Department.  Since being hired, I have participated in several funerals for officers killed in the line of duty and attended several memorial services in remembrance of officers killed in the line of duty.  It is a brotherhood and sense of unity, so it was only fitting that I raise funds to support this page.

The Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) is dedicated to honoring America's fallen law enforcement heroes. Since 1996, ODMP has recognized every officer who has made the ultimate sacrifice in the United States.  ODMP honors fallen law enforcement officers through online memorials, assists coordinating survivor benefits, and hosts the National Police Week 5K.

"When a police officer is killed, it's not an agency that loses an officer, it's an entire nation." -Chris Cosgriff, ODMP Founder
