Team Mike Durkin
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.
Team Mike Durkin
Our beloved son and brother Mike Durkin passed away at age 19 on December 21, 2015. Mike’s favorite charity was the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. Mike had great respect and admiration for police officers and understood the sacrifices they make for our public safety. Mike always wanted to be a police officer. This will be the second year of Team Mike Durkin. This is our way of honoring and remembering Mike. Mike regularly attended events of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation including the Run to Remember and the Valor Luncheon.
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?
Thanks for your support,
The Durkin Family
