Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis Will Attempt to Catch 7,000 “Fugitives”
Proceeds From June 4th Race to Raise Funds For Signal 13 and other Charities
Baltimore, MD – Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced today Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis will attempt to catch 7,000 “fugitives” at the ninth annual CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Baltimore 10 Miler on June 4th.
The unique “Caught by the Commish” promotion is a charity fundraiser to benefit the Signal 13 Foundation. Commissioner Davis will start at the back of the field on race day, and CSE will donate $4 to the foundation for every runner the commissioner beats to the finish line.
The Signal 13 Foundation’s mission is to provide financial assistance to Baltimore Police Department personnel, both civilian and sworn, who unexpectedly suffer extreme personal emergencies. A total of 30 Baltimore Police personnel are expected to run in the Baltimore 10 Miler as well.
Commissioner Davis said, “Signal 13 and the outstanding men and women of the Baltimore Police Department are grateful for the support we receive from the community we have sworn to serve and protect. Events like this enable officers to connect with Baltimore residents and visitors, and we’re touched by the gesture to help support the cause that helps one of our own in their personal lives should they need it.”
CSE President Lee Corrigan said, “It’s an honor to put on an event to benefit Baltimore’s finest. In addition to their vital responsibilities protecting our city, Baltimore Police not only protect Charm City on a daily basis but they also play key roles in the success of many of our events. We feel fortunate to be able to give back.”
The event also raises funds for the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, Girls on the Run and The Mark Ragonese Family Trust.
