BENEFITING: CHICAGO POLICE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO POLICE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
Friends and Family,
I am crazy enough to be running the Chicago Marathon again this year on October 13th! This year though I am running for a fantastic cause as a team member of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. And even though I checked the "correct" box on my career application (he he he!), I absolutely consider the men and women of area police forces to be my brothers in blue. My Dad, my sister-in-law Jamie Toczek (CPD), a few cousins and my uncle are my direct family members who understand this bond firsthand.
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes. The Foundation provides support and financial assistance to the families of Chicago police officers who are killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.
Please donate in any way you can. If you are looking for ideas, how about $1 per mile I will run, a mere $26.20. As always I appreciate your support everyone!
