Dear Family and Friends,
It has been almost one year that my dad, Chief Owen “Joe” McCrudden, passed away. In his memory, please consider donating to “Team Answer the Call” where I pledged to raise $3500. Two things Dad loved was running and being a firefighter! In his honor, I will be running in his favorite race this November- NYC Marathon. The mission of the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund is to support the families of New York City Police Officers, Firefighters, Port Authority Police, and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. When these brave men and women make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our city, we believe it is our civic duty to support the families these heroes have left behind. Our mission is to reassure these families that will never forget them or the sacrifice made by their loved ones. We currently provide annual financial assistance, host special gatherings, and offer a network of support to approximately 600 families. Our goal is to raise enough funds to enable us to increase the annual support we provide to these families. Our first responders come running whenever we need help. It's time we do the same for them.
