On October 14, 2018, I will competing in what many have called the toughest day in sports! This ultimate test of endurance known as an Ironman which consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run. This year is Ironman Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky. Through the Ironman Foundation's Your Journey, Your Cause program, I am able to raise funds for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation(CPMF). The CPMF 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 Chicago Police Officer, this charity is near and dear to my heart and does a lot to help our brothers and sisters in blue.
