Hey! We've raised $268,496.90 of the $300,000.00 we are trying to raise for this campaign!

In Memory of Billy Coulter

Bill served on the Massachusetts State Police for the past 45 years, achieving the rank of Detective Lieutenant. He was a member of the Massachusetts State Police Commissioned Officer’s Association. 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.

Cops For Kids With Cancer “Sponsored” Runners

To run in the Boston Marathon you need to have a fast enough qualifying time – or you can run for one of the official charities. As an official Charity Partner of the Boston Marathon we receive a small number of “invitational” entries to the Boston Marathon. We use these entries to recruit individual runners who pledge to raise at least $10,000 for our cause.

It is an honor to run this year on the Cops For Kids with Cancer marathon team in honor of Detective Lieutenant Coulter.  It will be my fifth Boston Marathon, and fifth year running with this amazing charity. I love the small close knit family vibe. The board truly takes pride in connecting with the community and supporting those who need a little something extra. Time to hit the pavement and pray for good weather on April 20th! Happy training to all!

This will be my 19th overall marathon and my 11th Boston Marathon. Since 2013, members of the Everett Police Department have run in the Boston Marathon and raised over $110,000 for Cops for Kids with Cancer, a 501c3 non- profit charity. As many of us are personally affected by cancer, it is especially heart-wrenching to hear of a child with this disease. Cops for Kids with Cancer raises money, ultimately awarding it to the families of children who are diagnosed with cancer. These families are each awarded $5000.00 to help relieve some of the financial burdens that often occur during treatment. Over the years, Cops for Kids with Cancer has given over $4.1 MILLION to 762 families in need.

Since 2013, I have run 6 Boston marathons with Cops for Kids. I am blessed to be able to turn my passion for running into something that will help children who are fighting for their health. The 2020 Boston marathon will also be my 30th marathon and not only am I running for the children of Cops for Kids but also to honor the life and legacy of my friend Bill Coulter. My fundraising goal is $10,000 with the hopes of raising as much money as possible to help kids who are fighting cancer. Any donation no matter the size is greatly appreciated and makes a huge difference!

Please help me support Cops For Kids With Cancer as I run the 2020 Boston Marathon with the MSP charity team! In twenty years of running I’ve completed 2 marathons, 20 half marathons and more shorter races than I can count… But this race is different because I’m doing it for such an important cause and the goals are so much bigger than my own. Thank you for your help!

Please help support me in my fourth Boston Marathon fundraising for Cops For Kids With Cancer! This charity not only does amazing work, but does so with humility and supports LOCAL families as they go through some of the hardest times of their lives. I’m picture here with Lt Bill Coulter, who got me started and became a friend and inspiration over the years, and Luis.  Luis received a check from CFKWC and has since gone to attend and complete a police academy in hopes of a career in law enforcement.  Please consider giving whatever you can to help our local kids and their families.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Cops for Kids with Cancer. This is my 6th year running the Boston Marathon and each year I struggle to find the words to express what this run and charity means to me. Each of my previous five runs has had special meaning for me and this year is no different. This year, I am running in memory of a friend, a coworker, a HERO. I am running for DLt Billy Coulter on the Mass State Police team.

I’m running in honor of Ironman Bill Coulter, who was my inspiration for the last 10 Boston Marathons, among many other things. He was a hero to myself and many others. It was an honor to be associated with him and the Boston Marathon group that he has assembled over the years.

Thank you for your support as we endeavor to help those impacted by this illness.

When my Uncle Billy, a Detective Lieutenant in the Massachusetts State Police and the Chairman of Cops for Kids with Cancer, passed away in the fall, I knew immediately that a marathon was in my imminent future. I consider myself to be so lucky to raise money for the charity that he was so passionate about by running the race he was so passionate about, the Boston Marathon.

This year I will be running the Boston Marathon in memory of my great friend Billy Coulter.  Billy, is the reason behind my marathoning experiences.  The photo above is he and I upon completion of the Boston to Big Sur Challenge (2 marathons, 2 coasts, 6 days apart). Through the years, we have partaken in so many great adventures together and shared so many laughs.

Running the Boston Marathon has been a dream and goal of mine for three years. I started running four years ago and fell in love with it ever since. I grew up in this city, and there is no other marathon I would rather run. I am excited to be running the Boston Marathon for Cops For Kids With Cancer. It is an amazing charity! Thank you all for supporting such a wonderful cause!

This year I’ll be running the Boston Marathon for my second time with the Cops For Kids With Cancer organization. This year is especially important to me as the State Police family has lost a rock in our foundation. Billy Coulter was a friend of mine and inspired me to run the Boston Marathon in 2019. His legacy lives on and I’m hoping he can lend me his motivation (and legs) for the upcoming training that needs to be done. I take a lot of pride in running for this organization and especially with Billy looking over us this year. God bless
