Thank you for donating to the Peekskill Police & Fire Department annual 5K charity run! Proceeds from the 5K will benefit local scholarships given out in the name of Detective Charles Wassil, and Career Firefighter Kevin J. Bristol.

After responding to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Detective Wassil, like many other responders, became very ill as a result of his rescue efforts. On May 1, 2013 Detective Wassil succumbed to his illness. Detective Wassil was an integral part of the City of Peekskill Police Department with 18 years of service. Prior to serving in Peekskill, Charlie was a member of the NYPD 44pct, and a United States Marine.

Career Firefighter Kevin J. Bristol was a proud member of the City of Peekskill Fire Department. On March 3, 2014, FF Bristol died in the Line of Duty after responding to an early morning kitchen fire. FF Bristol was born and raised in the City he proudly served. Kevin served as a Career Firefighter since 1989, and prior to his employment was a Volunteer Firefighter in Peekskill. FF Bristol also served his country as a Naval Reserve Corpsman.

Without your generous donations, these scholarships and the run itself would not be possible. On behalf of member of the Peekskill Police Department & Peekskill Fire Department, we thank you.
