9th Annual “Run to Remember”
May 4th, 2013
Saturday, May 4th was a beautiful day for Bernie Domagala and his family. Bernie, a rehabilitation resident at St. Pauls House, was selected to be the honorary starter for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s 9th Annual “Run to Remember.” Through this run and events like it, the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation provides assistance to the families of fallen or catastrophically injured officers.
Responding to a hostage situation in 1988 Officer Bernie Domagala, of Chicago Police’s Hostage, Barricade and Terrorist Unit, was hit above the eye by an offender’s bullet. Six hours of delicate brain surgery was able to remove that bullet and return him to his wife and three young children.
Fast-forward to today, past many difficult days of rehabilitation and limitations of brain injury, Bernie Domagala inspired over 5,400 runners at the start of the “Run to Remember.” Three of those runners were his absolute favorites, sons Erik, Adam and Craig Domagala. With his wife Denise by his side, they cheered the efforts of their three boys and all of the other race participants that showed their support of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
St. Pauls House, a Chicago “neighborhood within the neighborhood,” is continually thankful for Bernie and all of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department. We thank you all for your public service in protecting the health and safety of Chicagoans and our guests.
