Thankfully, I don't personally know any policemen who were killed in the line of duty. But I have had police officer friends myself and know many family members of others. I know there is a lot of sacrifice that goes into this job, for both the officers and the people who love them. I have been appalled at some of the comments people have made to me while I have tried to raise money for this cause, and saddened by the total indifference others have shown. But I am not giving up on trying for $1,000! I am running this race and fundraising merely to show that some everyday, average citizens very much appreciate Chicago's finest! THANK YOU for any donation you can make!
