Please support the Officer Donohue Fund
MBTA Transit Police Officer Richard Donohue was gravely wounded in the line of duty on April 19th during a gun battle with the suspects who are believed to be responsible for the bomb attack at the Boston Marathon. This attack took the life of a young boy and two young women while severely wounding and maiming nearly 300 more citizens. These suspects are also accused of killing Officer Sean Collier of the MIT Police Department.
Officer Donohue’s selfless actions in the face of unspeakable evil reflect his MBTA Police Training as well as the training of the Virginia Military Institute and service in the United States Navy prior to serving on the MBTA Transit Police force.
Officer Donohue is slowly improving from the life-threatening injuries he received while confronting the suspected terrorists. Together with his wife and seven-month-old son, the Donohue family faces a long and challenging road to recovery.
MBCR is very proud of Officer Donohue, slain MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, and every first responder in Eastern Massachusetts who responded to the worst imaginable situation with the utmost professionalism, dignity and honor.
Please join us in wishing Officer Donohue a speedy recovery by contributing to a registered non-profit fund that has been established in his name.
