In August 2019, the Bowie Police Department hosted the first ever Kickball for a Cause Charity Tournament. With a little help from our friends at DC Fray, our Department had an incredible and fun-filled day with food, friends, and kickball in support of a worthy organization: HEROES, Inc.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, restrictions with COVID-19, and out of abundance of caution and safety for all, we will not be hosting a kickball tournament in 2020. Stay tuned for plans for a 2021 event date!
HEROES Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to one singular goal: To honor the supreme sacrifice made by law enforcement officers and firefighters who give their lives in the line of duty while ensuring the safety of citizens in the greater Washington area.
HEROES Inc. believes that spouses and children of fallen heroes have enough urgent concerns without having to worry about financial ones. HEROES Inc. honors these fallen heroes by assisting these families in making smart decisions, protection against loss, and staying on solid financial ground. Help begins within 24 hours of the tragic loss and continuing indefinitely.
Twice a year, HEROES Inc. provides a cash gift to each dependent child under 21 years of age. This money helps the children do and have things they might not otherwise be able to enjoy.
Additionally, each child receives a check on his or her birthday as a reminder that the absent parent is remembered and honored. There is only one requirement for the child: to acknowledge the gift with a personal "thank you" letter. This is HEROES Inc.'s means of staying in touch with the families they support.
