My name is Rory Monahan. I am a freshman at Kettle Run High School and I was recently accepted into the FBI National Academy Associates Youth Leadership Program. This is a week-long training program that I will attend this summer and I look forward to the experience. Prior to attending the program, I have to complete a service project of my choosing. For the past two years, my sister Darby and I have raised money for the Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) through the “Laps for Law Enforcement Fundraiser.” I would like to know if you or your organization would be interested in donating to this worthy cause.
All of the money raised goes directly to COPS which is an organization founded on the premise of remembering the sacrifice of law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty, while honoring their survivors. COPS specifically provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected coworkers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
Beginning April 26 through May 4, 2019, Darby and I will be swimming laps in honor of the men and women in law enforcement who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and died in the line of duty. Each night we will swim in honor of a specific fallen hero. We will also post daily updates on our progress. Our plan is to present a check to COPS at their survivor breakfast on May 4, 2019 which is prior to Police Week 2019.
Thank you for your consideration in donating to Laps for Law Enforcement 2019. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.
