THE STORY:

My Story:

I have been training and running races over the past few years. This hobby is gives me many hours of personal reflection time, free from the distractions of phones, email, etc.  I have been searching for ways to use my love of running to benefit others, and I think I may have finally hit on something. Last April, the nation watched as the Boston Marathon turned into a war zone due to the heinous terrorist acts. I was shocked by the events and wanted to search for a way to help. I reached out to the Boston Athletic Association to see where I could get involved. It was there I found the Cops for Kids with Cancer organization.

Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Cops for Kids with Cancer (CFKWC) and was selected to Run the 2014 Boston Marathon representing the team.

Cops For Kids With Cancer is a charity that gives money directly to families who are dealing with the challenge of having a child sick with cancer.  The volunteer charity board consists primarily of Police Officers and/or retired Police Officers who want each family to feel the positive reinforcement that someone else cares.  These families are each awarded $5000 to help relieve the stress of financial burdens and hopefully put a small smile on their face.  If you can imagine, you can understand. Cops For Kids With Cancer does not have salaries or expense accounts, all monies are returned to the families in need.

Thank you for helping me help others. I will run with thoughts of all those who help make it happen. You are truly special!

Jeff
