The Howling Wolf

Just as our wolf logo symbolizes the leadership, loyalty, strength of character and sense of family that is displayed by emergency responders, The Howling Wolf serves as the voice of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund. A wolf’s howl attracts other members of the pack, invites communication and creates a strong bond between pack members. We hope this blog will have the same impact on emergency responders, workplace safety professionals and traffic safety advocates, bringing us all together in the same pack and providing valuable information about workplace safety issues affecting first responders.

Check in frequently for updates on JPMF events and initiatives, interesting research and to add your own howl to our pack.

Half Marathon Helpers Wanted

The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund  (JPMF) is pleased to be helping out at the Calgary Police Half Marathon, which takes 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
