(Feb. 25, 2017) -- January storms temporarily postponed but won't prevent this year's Chrissy Strong-Marshall Memorial Kickball Tournament re-scheduled for Sunday morning Feb. 26 at El Dorado Park's baseball fields. Opening ceremonies are scheduled for 8:00 a.m. with first pitch at 8:30 a.m.

Organized by now-retired LBPD Commander Josef Levy, the annual event raises funds benefiting the non-profit National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation and the City of Hope. It honors the memory of Chrissy Strong-Marshall who (Commander Levy writes) "was a friend to many and a former Bureau Manager for the City of Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine Department. As Bureau Manager, Chrissy was responsible for overseeing all recreation programs in the City of Long Beach. Chrissy was known for her passion and dedication to the Long Beach Community and promoted inclusion for all people. But while fighting for others, Chrissy was fighting her own battle against cancer, which she valiantly fought for seven years, until she passed away in 2009 at the age of forty."

Commander Levy and Steve Bowles (Seal Beach PD Sergeant) created the National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation to provide free emotional support, guidance and resources to members of the law enforcement community during a cancer experience. As a volunteer-driven, donor supported nationwide organization, National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation members comprise a network of law enforcement cancer survivors who are committed to serve others by upholding bravery, faith, strength and courage during a cancer journey.



At Sunday's Tournament, sixteen teams will battle it out with the winning team receiving bragging rights and the coveted trophy. The Long Beach Police Officers Association will be providing a free BBQ lunch to all participants.

Commander Levy welcomes the public and notes there'll be a silent auction and other supportive opportunities on site, and readers can make donations right now online at the National Law Enforcement Cancer Support Foundation's website at at this link. The group describes its work in detail at at this link and also maintains a Facebook page at this link
