BENEFITING: COPS FOR KIDS WITH CANCER INC
ORGANIZER: COPS FOR KIDS WITH CANCER INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
I have the honor of running the Boston Marathon again this year in support of an amazing organization - Cops For Kids With Cancer. Together we can make a difference in so many families lives that are affected by cancer!
Cops For Kids With Cancer is a charity that gives money directly to families who are dealing with the challenges of having a child sick with cancer. I, along with several other Massachusetts State Troopers who are also running the marathon have made a commitment to raise $1,000 a piece to donate to Cops for Kids with Cancer. In the last five years, the charity has raised over $1 million and has given to over 200 families in need. These families are each awarded $5,000 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.
