BENEFITING: Behind the Badge Foundation

EVENT DATE: Nov 28, 2010

I will be running the Seattle Marathon in November in honor of police officers killed in the line of duty and their families. Please support me in this cause!

Police officers are the daily heroes that keep our neighborhoods and families safe. It is a physically and mentally challenging career that affects the family as much as the officer. Few careers have a higher rate of catastrophic injury or death and it is believed that 50% of surviving officers of a catastrophic event suffer from PTSD.

The Behind the Badge Foundation's mission is to honor the sacrifices of officers who have suffered a line of duty death or catastrophic injury by:

* Serving as the trusted resource to families and surviving officers

* Providing immediate and ongoing support

* Maintaining the Law Enforcement Memorial as eternal recognition and remembrance for fallen Washington officers

There have been 29 Officers killed in the line of duty in Washington since 2000 and 8 of those in the last 10 months. In each case, a family has lost a husband/wife or a father/mother and fellow officers have lost a friend. The families of fallen officers need the emotional and financial support that the Behind the Badge Foundation provides.

Thank you so much for your support.
