11 Feb Chrissy Strong-Marshall Memorial Kickball Tournament
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of the National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation (LECSF), I am asking for your support for the upcoming 3rd Annual Chrissy Strong-Marshall Kickball Tournament. Chrissy, a good friend and a former mentor of mine, was a Bureau Manager for the City of Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine and was passionate about youth programs and building safe and inclusive parks. Sadly, Chrissy lost her courageous battle to cancer on March 20, 2009, at the age of forty.
In her memory, we have been hosting the Annual Chrissy Strong-Marshall Memorial Kickball Tournament. This popular tournament has grown to attract 16 teams and draws over 600 people from various City of Long Beach Departments. This daylong event was designed to remember Chrissy while raising funds for the National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation (LECSF) and The City of Hope. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2012 from 8:00 am–6:00pm at the El Dorado Park Athletic Fields.
The National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation provides free emotional support, guidance and resources to help those in the law enforcement community, their families, friends and loved ones, by providing one-on-one cancer support in a non-judgmental, empathetic manner.
As the President of the LECSF and a cancer survivor, I am writing to ask for your support as either a corporate or private sponsor of this year’s tournament. Corporate sponsor levels begin at $500 and entitle you or your organization to be listed on the tournament banner and t-shirts. Additionally, you will receive special recognition at opening ceremonies. Of course any donation made is greatly appreciated and will help the LECSF and City of Hope continue to do their valuable work. Online donations can be made by clicking here. All donations are tax deductible.
We hope you will take pride in knowing that your support, joined with the support of many others, enables the LECSF to carry on its efforts to provide support to members of the law enforcement community facing a cancer experience.

Once again, thank you in advance for your support.
