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.

1935 John A. Kelley

Born in West Medford, Massachusetts as one of ten children, Kelley ran track and cross-country at Arlington High School in Massachusetts. He did not finish his first Boston Marathon in 1928, but eventually competed in a record 61 Boston Marathons. A legend of the marathon, Kelley won the 1935 and 1945 runnings of the Boston Marathon. He finished in second place at Boston a record seven times. Between 1934 to 1950, he finished in the top five 15 times at Boston, consistently running in the 2:30s. He ran his last full marathon at Boston in 1992 at the age of 84, his 61st start and 58th finish there.
