Raise money for Corporal Christopher M. Shea Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc.

Corporal Christopher M. Shea of the Delaware State Police was a native of Hampton, NJ and a 1990 graduate of Kittatinny Regional High School.  Chris was an avid runner and a member of the Cross Country team as a student athlete. At first, Chris chose college as the path to achieve his career goal of becoming a state police officer. Due to the financial pressure of attending college, he later decided to serve in the U.S. Marines after he discovered this as an alternative to reaching his goal. Chris was always proud of his service.

Chris accomplished his lifelong goal in 2000 when he was chosen by the Delaware State Police.  He spent the next 4 years protecting and serving his community while doing a job he loved. Chris was tragically killed on July 18, 2004 when his cruiser was struck head on by a vehicle being operated by a drunk driver.

The annual Corporal Christopher M. Shea Memorial 5k is a yearly event that was started in 2005 to raise money for high school graduates entering the fields of Law, Law Enforcement, and/or other Civil Service. All profit from the money raised is donated to the Corporal Christopher M Shea Memorial Scholarship Fund and is awarded as a scholarship to graduating seniors of Kittatinny Regional High School and other local area schools in honor of Christopher M. Shea.

To date, the event has awarded over $15,000 in scholarships to qualifying and deserving students.
