BENEFITING: COPS FOR KIDS WITH CANCER INC
ORGANIZER: COPS FOR KIDS WITH CANCER INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
My name is Michelle Williams and I am a Boston Police Officer. On Monday, April 20th, I will be fulfilling a dream I've had of running the Boston Marathon for the first time. More important than accomplishing my own personal goal, running in the 119th Boston Marathon gives me the opportunity to fundraise for "Cops For Kids With Cancer". "Cops For Kids With Cancer" is a charity that gives money directly to the families who are dealing with the challenge of having a sick child with cancer. The volunteer charity board consists primarily of Police Officers and/or retired Police Officers who want each family to feel the positive reinforcement that someone else cares. These families are each awarded $5,000.00 to help relieve the stress of financial burdens and hopefully put a small smile on their faces. If you can imagine, you can understand. Unfortunately, cancer has affected many of our families, friends, and neighbors. And I am asking you to support me by making a donation so that I can run for those who cannot run for themselves. Cops For Kids With Cancer is a federally recognized 501C-3 not for profit organization and donations are tax-deductible. Thank you in advance for your support.
