The Peekskill Police Benevolent Association and Peekskill Professional Firefighters IAFF Local 2343 are hosting a 5K Run/Walk. 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 September 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 proudly served his country as a Naval Reserve Corpsman.

We hope you will join us for an event to help us remember our Brothers that we have lost, and to help us continue on their proud legacy's of service to our community!
