Team Tommy Begg

Our team is Running to support our Law Enforcement families in honor of my Dad, Tom Begg.

Tommy Begg has been a long-time supporter of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. Since being diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in mid-2015, his health has declined and seems to be doing so more rapidly of late.  He is home-bound now and we know that he would want more than anything to be volunteering at the run this year just as he has in the past. We will be there for you this year, Dad! We are thankful for the lessons of respect and honor he has taught us to show for our law enforcement officers. We never do forget!

Help us support the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation!

We are participating in the Run to Remember, which is a 5k Run/Walk held in memory of the more than 570 Chicago police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Why should you support the CPMF?
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes by providing support and financial assistance to the families of Chicago Police Officers who were killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty. Through your generous support, they serve the families of those who have served and protected Chicago’s citizens. The Foundation provides $60,000 to the family at the time of an officer’s death and continues to support the family by providing educational and tuition assistance for the officer’s children.

Won’t you help?

The Foundation pledges to “Never Forget” the families of Chicago’s fallen and catastrophically injured officers and they keep that promise several times throughout the year at events like the Candlelight Vigil, Operation Santa and the Run to Remember. Won’t you please show that you still remember them too by making a donation today?
