BENEFITING: OFFICER DOWN MEMORIAL PAGE
EVENT DATE: May 14, 2016
It's hard to believe that it's been almost four years since Officer Kevin Ambrose was killed in the line of duty in Springfield, Massachusetts. He is now joined in Heaven, we hope, by the young police officer, Ashley Guindon, who was gunned down in Woodbridge, Virginia, two days ago just 20 miles south of Washington, DC -- and on her FIRST full day on the job.. Oddly enough, Officer Guindon was born in Springfield, Massachusetts and raised in Merrimack, New Hampshire. I'll be running again (my 4th time in 3 years) on Saturday morning, May 14 in downtown DC in a 5K run to help raise money for "ODMP" (Officer Down Memorial Page). Many of you have donated before and I thank you again. I a setting a goal of $500 this year and I am not 100% sure -- as of Feb 29 -- if the fundraising page is 100% ready to go. I hope to know by the end of this week. If you are not familiar with the work of ODMP, check them out at http://www.odmp.org Thanks to you all for your financial support in the past and in the coming 11 weeks. And most of all, thanks to Officer Kevin Ambrose and Officer Ashley Guindon who both can claim Springfield, Massachusetts as their home while serving their communities and giving their lives in the line of duty.
