The money will go to camp and Outward Bound for children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, and other programs.
Our father was a Richmond Virginia police officer killed in the line of duty in 2003. Since then we have been to Kids Camp, Outward Bound, C.O.P.S. Kids/Teens at Police Week, and every other program C.O.P.S. has. At camp, along with counseling, confidence-boosting, and time spent doing dad things with men in uniforms, the most important thing is the friendships we make with kids just like us all across the US. We have friends in Vermont, Michigan, Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Missouri, and many more different states. Nobody understands you like someone who is in your shoes.
