Boston officer Dic Donohue selflessly put himself in harms way protecting the city of Boston the evening of Thursday, April 18th in the wake of the murderous bombings. Officer Donohue sustained life threatening injuries. A selfless son to his native state of Massachusetts, a husband, father to a young son, Navy veteran and 2002 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute where he was a distinguished scholar and athlete, Dic has embodied heroism.
His classmates from VMI have established this site to raise support and awareness for his selfless acts. All funds will go directly to supporting Dic and his wife, Kim and their young son.
All aspects of the funding campaign for Dic's family are co-managed between VMI class of 2002 representatives Salmaan Khawaja, Conor Evans, Jason Breeding, Ron Hull and Matt Thompson. In 14 days, when the funding campaign has ended and the family has been able to catch their breath from the flurry of activity they are experiencing now, those managers aforementioned (Ron, Jason, Conor, Salmaan, Matt), will talk with the family and allocate 100% of the proceeds based on their determination of how it will be most impactful for their long term needs. Stay tuned for pictures of the family when they receive this amazing gift!
