Inspired by her husband, Tina Beres, has also decided to run the Lakefront Marathon on Oct 7th, 2018 and raise funds for C.O.P.S. Kids Camp. She will be running wearing a ballistic vest to bring awareness and support to the families of the Officers lost in the line of duty. The vest will represent the weight a family who loves an Officer carries every day. She finds inspiration in the many families she has met through WI C.O.P.S. events. Their strength, poise and determination is something she finds herself thinking about often.
The marathon starts in Grafton and finishes along the shores of Lake Michigan north of the Milwaukee Art Museum at Veterans Park.
What is C.O.P.S. Kids Camp?
C.O.P.S. Kids Camp is planned for surviving children (6-14 years of age) and their parent/guardian of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria. C.O.P.S. Kids Camp provides family interaction, camp activities, grief counseling, relaxation and lots of old-fashioned fun! Campers will have the opportunity to attend age appropriate grief counseling sessions and participate in activities such as: swimming, fishing, arts and crafts, canoeing, ropes courses, archery, shooting sports and campfire skits. It is our goal for campers to leave the week with a continuing support system of peers who truly understand and gain a sense of personal growth with hope for the future.
