Cops For Kids With Cancer is a charity that gives  money directly  to families who are dealing with the challenge of having a child sick with cancer.  The volunteer charity board  consists primarily of Police Officers and/or retired Police Officers who want each family to feel the positive reinforcement that someone else cares.  These families are each awarded $5000 to help relieve the stress of financial burdens and hopefully put a small smile on their face.  If you can imagine, you can understand. Cops For Kids With Cancer does not have salaries or expense accounts, all monies are returned to the families in need.

1966 - Bobbi Gibb

Although not an official entrant, Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. Joining the starting field shortly after the gun had been fired, Gibb finished the race in 3:21:40 to place 126th overall. Gibb again claimed the “unofficial” title in 1967 and 1968.
