As a 20-year member of the NYPD I have spent all of my career helping cops. So when I was given the chance to help cops' kids, and compete in a long time goal of mine I jumped at it. I have been given the chance to not only accomplish a personal goal of running in the NYC Marathon, I will also be raising funds to help our families.
NYPD With Arms Wide Open helps fund needed medical equipment and services to NYPD members who are raising special needs children. Health insurance only covers so much, With Arms Wide Open helps provide financial aid for therapies and equipment, as well as provide financial support to those facing extended stays in hospitals - both in-state and across the country. It’s hard enough to be a police officer and raise a family in this city and country, With Arms Wide Open helps ease some of the financial burden in raising a special needs child.
I am excited and grateful to get this opportunity to help our families. I would love your support and help as we raise funds to enable With Arms Wide Open to continue to support our families with special needs children.
