Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson invites all members of the department, and their family and friends, to join a team and vie for the Run to Remember Superintendent’s Cup.
As many of you know, the Run to Remember is the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s annual 5K run/walk that raises funds to support families of fallen and catastrophically injured Chicago Police Officers. To further the goals of the Run to Remember, and showcase the collaborative and supportive spirit of Officers, family members and friends who continue to support the race, Superintendent Johnson has introduced the Superintendent’s Cup; a trophy awarded to units in the Chicago Police Department that have the highest percentage of participation. The goal of the competition is to encourage friendly competition among department units through a fun family event that promotes a healthy lifestyle.
Each team must have a unit team captain designated by the Commanding Officer of the unit. Each captain will receive a promotion code for a free registration to the race. There will be two cups of equal prestige, one for units up to 49 members (small division), and one for 50+ members (large division). The Superintendent’s Cup will be awarded to the units with the highest percentage of participation within their unit for the annual Run to Remember. If multiple units are tied with 100% participation, the average amount of fundraising per member of the team will be the determining factor in awarding the cup. All funds raised support the families of Chicago Police Officers. For more information, visit www.cpdmemorial.org
· The number of members for each unit is determined by the official roster published by Information Services Division and available through the Office of Community Policing on February 1, 2019.
· Each unit team will include a unit team captain, who is designated by the Commanding Officer of the unit.
· Any member of the team can invite department members and other individuals to join their team.
· Department members can join any unit team and are not required to join the unit team they are assigned to.
· Both Superintendents' Cups will be awarded to the units (small and large division) with the highest percentage of registered members for the Run to Remember for each category. Only the winning units will receive the Superintendent's Cup – not all participants of the teams.
· If the participation percentage is a tie, the total funds raised will be divided by the number of team members, giving the average raised per person. The unit team with the largest average will win the Superintendent’s Cup.
· Cut off for registration is at 11:59pm on Tuesday, April 30th when online registration for the Run to Remember closes.
· Cut off for fundraising for the Superintendent’s Cup is at 8:00pm Friday, May 3th, 2019.
· The Superintendent's Cup Winners will be announced at the Post Race Party at the Run to Remember, on May 4, 2019 and the cups will remain in their Unit until other winners are announced in future years.
Reminder – only Unit Teams can vie for the Superintendent's Cups – however, we appreciate the continued support of all participants
