In Memory of Billy Coulter
Billy served on the Massachusetts State Police for the past 45 years, achieving the rank of Detective Lieutenant. He was a proud member of the Massachusetts State Police Commissioned Officers Association, of which I currently serve as the President. He was a longtime cancer survivor and passionate about Cops for Kids with Cancer, where he was the Chairman. His other passion was physical fitness, completing over 20 Ironman Triathlons and 150 marathons, including 36 consecutive Boston Marathons and every Disney World Marathon. This will be the first marathon he will not be running is 36 years. One of the last things I did with Billy was to deliver his framed collection of Boston Marathon medals to be updated with his last few. He passed before we could pick it up. It is in the picture attached along with the plaque that sits outside the gym here at the State Police Headquarters that bears his name.
In Billy’s honor, I am trying to raise $1,000 for the charity that he held so dear. Cops for Kids with Cancer is a Boston based, non-profit charity established back in 2004 with the purpose of assisting families who were experiencing economic hardship as a result of caring for a child stricken with cancer. All too often a parent needs to take a leave of absence from work to care for the child; costs associated with that care and other bills soon pile up. Their mission is to lessen that burden by providing these families with grants of assistance in the amount of $5,000. To date they have assisted over 700 families across New England with grants totaling over $3 million. They are a true non-profit. All their Board members are volunteers and even their office space is donated – helping them to direct nearly every dollar raised to families in need. They currently average providing grants to 8 families per month ($40,000). Thank you in advance for any support you may be able to provide.
