Saint Xavier Professor raises $3,500 for fallen Chicago Police officers

Most raised by one individual at 4th Annual Run to Remember

news story imageChicago (May 5, 2008) Saint Xavier University Professor Bill Kresse raised $3,500 for the families of fallen Chicago Police officers at the 4th Annual Run To Remember on Saturday, May 3. Proceeds from the annual 5K run along Chicago’s lakeshore go toward the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.

Kresse raised the highest amount of donations for the race this year and lost 50 pounds leading up to his first 5K. 

“I am so pleased to have been able to take part in such a worthy cause,” Kresse said. “It is an honor to help remember these brave men and women.” 

Kresse is the director and chief architect of the financial fraud examination and management graduate program at Saint Xavier University’s Graham School of Management, currently the only classroom-based MBA program in financial fraud examination and identity theft in the country.  

Saint Xavier offers the program, which combines law enforcement, law, accounting and general business education, at its Chicago campus, at the Chicago Bar Association building in the Loop and at the Chicago Police Academy. The U.S. Air Force and Chicago Police Department have both chosen the program to better train their agents and officers in identity theft and financial and procurement fraud.

Saint Xavier University also recently celebrated its 10-year partnership with the Chicago Police Department of offering an entire MBA program specifically for CPD officers and employees.
