|Thank you for helping us reach our original goal of $10,000! With an overwhelming response to our fundraising campaign we have reset our goal to raise $20,000 for the Newtown Police Union before raceday on Sunday. We are still accepting donations so please continue to spread the word. Thank you again!|
On December 14, 2012, heartbreak struck the small town of Newtown, CT. After the school shooting in Sandy Hook, many Newtown Police Officers were unable to return to work due to the extreme mental and physical impact caused by witnessing such tragedy. During this time of extended leave, officers have had to use sick time and unfortunately that sick time is coming close to running out. Once that happens many officers who have worked so hard to protect our communities will be left without a full paycheck.
The Newtown Police Union is raising funds to support their fellow officers’ ongoing personal and medical expenses associated with dealing with this tragedy.
Please help the Newtown Police Union get their officers the help they need and deserve.
