WPA Instructors Give Back: SWAT Officers Run for Kids with Cancer
Many of the officers who taught workshops at the 2015 Writers’ Police Academy recently participated in the 50-mile Snowdrop Run, a charity fundraiser for pediatric cancer research and care. SWAT team members/WPA instructors ran in full SWAT gear. This, my friends, is exactly what the WPA is all about. We exist solely to help others—writers, student scholarships, etc.—, and thanks to you and our generous instructors, sponsors, and academy, we’re able to do just that. This further validates our decision to move the WPA to Appleton and FVTC.
To date we’ve donated well over $70,000.00 to our host colleges/academies. The funds go toward student scholarships (both degreed and certificate programs), and to help with funding for police, fire, EMS, and forensics education and training. So, when you sign up to attend the WPA, your dollars and donated raffle and auction items are used to help enrich and better the lives of others, and we thank you for your continued support.
