Massachusetts State Police to participate in “Walk & Run” to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital


“For the second year in a row, Troopers will organize a team to raise money to benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancers and other life-threatening diseases.

Since opening their doors more than 50 years ago, St. Jude has more than quadrupled the survival rate for childhood cancers to more than 80 percent, but there is more work to be done.

That’s where you come in. Donations from fundraising events like the St. Jude Walk & Run allow families to not worry about receiving a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food. In times where a child falls ill, all a family should be concerned about is getting better.

The MSP Team, through donations and team members, raised over $2500 for St. Jude in 2020. We were in the top 10 fundraisers for new teams in 2020. We hope to do even better this year!

People can register for the in-person walk on Boston Common on September 25th, register for the virtual walk option, or switch options after signing up any time prior to September 25th. Anyone interested can contact team captain Trooper John Denapoli at John.Denapoli@pol.state.ma.us –

Sign-up online, or donate here.

St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer, and neither will we. Will you join us by registering for our team or making a donation today?

Your support makes a powerful, lifesaving impact. Let’s inspire kindness and find hope, because together, nothing is impossible.”

About MetalBombshell

I used to write a LOT when I was in high school, but after becoming a mom, that part of me ceased to exist unless I was writing a personal letter to a friend. I want to re-awaken that creativity in me. I like to take photographs and ride on the back of my husband Shannon's Harley, go to live metal and hard core shows, and I hit the gym regularly and pretend I am a brontosaurus when I eat salad. I also love Antiques and live smack dab in Eastern central New Bedford!
