Narrative:  

In addition to their careers as law enforcement officers and their family commitments, the members of Cops Running For Charity have logged more than 3,000 miles on their feet raising money for medical charities.

 

As if running marathons isn't difficult enough, the men have run across the dunes of the Sahara Desert, plodded on the undulating Great Wall in China, and scrambled across volcanoes and glaciers in Iceland. Those are just a few of their feats that have raised thousands of dollars for multiple charities here at home.

 

They push themselves to their physical limits for the benefit of children and others in our communities who need their help. In 2011, the team has raised more than $40,000.00.

 

Sheriff Geoff Dean will present checks on Monday, Jan. 23, 2012 on behalf of Cops Running For Charity  to representatives of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Children's Hospital, Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Blazemen Foundation for ALS, ALS Association,  Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camarillo Hospice, Dr. Darrell Davey MD Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund, and the Westminster Clinic.

 

All of the CRFC members will be at the event, including: Captain Randy Pentis, Captain Dave Kenney, Captain Tim Hagel, Captain Paul Higgason, Sergeant Joe Devorick, and Sergeant Frank Underlin.

 

The presentation will take place at 10:30 a.m. at the Camarillo Police Department. Anyone interested in more information about CRFC can contact Commander Randy Pentis at (805)947-8067 or by e-mail at randy.pentis@ventura.org.
