Rock The Badges is a fundraising event supporting Chicago First Responder Charity Organizations: Ignite The Spirit and The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.

Ignite the Spirit began in 2003 when a meeting of the minds came together to create an organization that would help Chicago fire fighters in need; our brothers and sisters on the job that have fallen victim to life’s unjust hardships. Learn more here:

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes. The Foundation provides support and assistance to the families of Chicago police officers who are killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty. Learn more here:
