THE STORY:

Greetings,

I am Detective Jesus Chavez from the Lakewood Police Department, but please call me Moose (I was fat as a kid).  I have been with the Lakewood Police Department for thirteen years and have been on the S.W.A.T Team for seven years. I am currently assigned to Juvenile Crime Unit. I have done several programs to benefit kids and teenagers. Programs like Trick or Treat Street and Christmas Cheer.  Each year, I attempt to put smiles on homeless kids.  I am now trying to help one child at minimum fight the battle against cancer.  Can you help?

I finally made it to the Boston Marathon 2014 and will be representing the Lakewood Police Department.  It was not by ability, it was by desire to help kids fighting Cancer.  My best marathon time is 3:52:06 at the Chicago Marathon 2013.  To qualify for the Boston Marathon, I would need to run a 3:10:00 or faster in my age group.  That will probably never happen.  However, I am proud to tell you I am one of twenty-four law enforcement officers across the nation selected to run the 118th Boston Marathon.  I will be running with Cops for Kids with Cancer (copsforkidswithcancer.org) and I need your help.  The money is awarded to the families to help relieve the stress of financial burdens and hopefully put a smile on their face.

The San Francisco Marathon in 2009 was my first 26.2 and I did not stop running after that.  Turkey Istanbul Marathon 2010 is my most memorable run.  Apples and dirty water is not an aid station!  I was the first person to run the BolderBoulder 10k in full S.W.A.T gear http://askville.amazon.com/people-run-bolder-boulder-2010-race/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=69207829.  In 2011 I ran the Colorado Relay and lost all of my toe nails.  I can now say “Toenails are for Sissies”.  In October 2013, I pushed a student suffering from cerebral palsy. http://www.denverpost.com/running/ci_24351561/lakewood-police-officer-chavez-was-helped-and-now.        

As you can see I am a seasoned runner but without your help, I cannot help a kid fighting cancer or run the Boston Marathon.  We all have stories of cancer and how it affects our lives.  To end, I would like to end with a quote from my buddy, Phillip McCelland, “Thanks for checking in, I hope your tears dry when the sun rises".  Thank you for your support.

Moose
