Volunteers Wanted: Calgary Police Half Marathon

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund is once again pleased to be helping out at the Calgary Police Half Marathon, taking place on Sunday, April 26th.

We will be hosting a water station for the runners in South Glenmore Park and we’re looking for volunteers to help mix Gatorade, fill cups with water and hand out beverages to race participants. Help is also needed with water station setup and keeping the site clean. No previous experience is required and volunteers are needed from 7:45 am until 11 am.

Parking is available near the water station and helpers are asked to dress appropriately. No matter what the forecast calls for, volunteers should bring gloves, hats, toques and coats.

If you’re interested in helping out, please contact JPMF Managing Director Ian Wilson at ian@jpmf.ca {read more}

Transforming loss into positive change

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

JPMF Board Chair Maryanne Pope will be in Calgary next month talking to police officers and their families.

In an event hosted by Calgary Beyond the Blue, Maryanne will be delivering a presentation entitled Officer Down: Transforming Loss Into Positive Change.

She will discuss her journey of coming to terms with the death of her husband, Const. John Petropoulos, who passed away on Sept. 29, 2000 after stepping through a false ceiling during a break-and-enter call.

Her powerful presentation is a candid account of the days leading up to John’s fall, the circumstances that led to his death and her experience of learning to accept the unacceptable by transforming loss into positive change – both through her writing and through the safety initiatives of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund. {read more}
