Iowa State Penitentiary has participated in the Law Enforcement Torch run for more than 15 years. ISP Sgt. Chris McCormick has been an integral part of not only the Torch Run but also coordinating a Special Olympics’ fundraiser in honor of Scott Bryant.
McCormick has helped to raise over $25,000 to go to the family of fallen Correctional Officer Scott Bryant as well as to the Special Olympics.
Recently McCormick received the Scott Bryant Memorial ‘Unsung Hero’ Award for all of his efforts. “I was honored to receive the Award.” Said McCormick, “It meant a lot to me and it was completely unexpected. The Scott Bryant Memorial Poker Run was initially put together as a means to honor my friend, Scott Bryant as well as offset expenses for the family”
The funds from the poker run were then diverted to the Special Olympics. “This year will be the 14th Annual Poker Run and it has been a privilege to coordinate this event.” Says McCormick “Scott was like a brother to me, and I know he would have done the same.”
The next Poker Run is scheduled for August 19th for more information (319) 371-4980.
