On May 3, nearly 6,000 citizens, police officers and families of fallen officers are expected to race in the 10th Annual Run to Remember. ABC 7 is a media sponsor. The 5K run and walk honors Chicago police officers who have been killed or seriously injured in the line of duty. It raises funds and awareness for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, which provides financial support to families of officers killed or severely injured in the line of duty. WLS's Roe Conn, Foundation Executive Director Phil Cline and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy will kick off the race with a brief program.
Phil Cline, Executive Director of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, and injured Chicago Police Officer Cedric Brumley came into our ABC 7 Eyewitness News studio to tell us about the Run To Remember and the cause it supports.
