BENEFITING: CHICAGO POLICE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO POLICE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
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.
As a family that has lost a police officer in the line of duty, we would love nothing more than to help those who will go through the same tragedy as us. We are running in honor of our son and brother, Officer Nickolaus "Nick" Schultz. Nick worked for Merrillville Police Department and had two goals for his career, to work for Chicago Police Department and then eventually S.W.A.T. My mom and I knew this was the charity to run for.
Nick became an avid runner his senior year in college after his football season was over to prepare for the physical test for the academy. Nick found a love for running and one of Nick's goals in life was to run the Chicago Marathon, so my mom and I will cross the finish line with our guardian angel by our side.
We greatly appreciate and want to thank everyone in advance to all those who donate!
