Thanks to everyone supporting this Kerrie On! fundraiser. In 3 weeks it has totaled nearly $800 to benefit the Officer Down Memorial Page. I See more
On Saturday May 14th, 2016 I will be running the National Police Week 5K in Washington D.C. in memory of Omaha Police Detective Kerrie Orozco. Det. Orozco was shot and killed in the line of duty on May 20, 2015 attempting to serve a warrant as a member of the Metro Area Fugitive Task Force. She was working her last shift before she was to begin her maternity leave when she was shot in the chest just above her vest. I am asking for donations in the amount of $19.69 representing Detective Orozco's badge number (1969) however any amount is greatly appreciated. The National Police Week 5K is hosted by the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) to honor fallen law enforcement officers by raising awareness to the sacrifices officers make every day. The event raises money to support ODMP programs like No Parole for Cop Killers, Line of Duty Death Notifications, ODMP K9, and research to uncover the stories of forgotten heroes. Funds are also donated to Concerns of Police Survivors to support important programs that assist survivors after the loss of a loved one. Please help me in honoring this hero's courage and sacrifice and "Kerrie On" in her memory.
