Milford police officer Michael Compare, an experienced distance runner, will be competing in the Rev-3 Half Ironman Triathalon on Sunday June 2, at Lake Quassy in Middebury.
Compare said that he will Race4Chase, using the event to raise money for the Chase Kowalski Memorial Fund, set up by the parents of a 6 year-old boy killed in the Sandy Hook shooting in December. The Kowalskis are turning tragedy into triumph by supporting healing and programs for children.
The Milford officer said he began running in races when he was 6, and noted that Chase was also an active runner. “If you can help me by donating to my run I will be able to reach the $3,000 goal I have set,” he said.
