Four months ago, on October 18, 2009, nearly 600 people laced up their running shoes and participated in the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington, DC's 2nd Annual "Race to Remember." The event supports the Memorial Fund's efforts to build the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC. Pictures and winners from the 2009 race can be found here: http://nleomf.blogspot.com/2009/10/race-to-remember-2009.html.
On Monday, February 22, 2010, Memorial Fund Chairman & CEO Craig Floyd, along with staffers Kevin Morison and Mary Brown, visited MPD headquarters to thank the MPD and Fraternal Order of Police, DC Lodge #1 for successfuly organizing the event and supporting the Museum. Chief of Police Cathy Lanier, Assistant Chief Pat Burke, and Marcello Muzzatti, DC Lodge #1 President, presented the Memorial Fund with a check for $10,000, bringing the MPD's total contribution to $20,000.
