560 Reasons To Run

run_to_remember_logo_2011.jpg

As long as there has been a Chicago, there have been police officers giving their lives to make sure that our streets, homes and lives are safe.

Constable James Quinn was the first in 1853, Officer Michael Fisk, the most recent on November 26, 2010, when he was fatally shot while processing a crime scene.

The CPD Shamrock Shuffle team is still looking for runners to run with them as a way of honoring all 560 of the fallen officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.  They are only half way full and need your support. Each runner will represent an officer.  Click here to register.

The Run to Remember 5K
on Saturday, April 30, 2011is open for registration.  This is another great way to show your support for those brave men and women who gave their lives to make ours better.

Click here to register.

Below are a few names and faces of the men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty.  Click here to see all 560.

  • Thanks for the reminder - I just signed up. Also, as one of the winners of the Craft baselayer from Turin Bikes I wanted to offer my heartfelt thanks! I wore the baselayer (and several other layers) on my weekly Chick's Night run on the frigid Wednesday a few weeks ago and stayed toasty warm and dry throughout my run. I also wore it alone under a vest when the weather warmed up a bit and was equally comfortable - it's truly a versatile piece!
