Frederick Police Chief will run Frederick Half Marathon to Raise Money in the Memory of Lt Stew Alcorn
April 6, 2022- Corrigan Sports Enterprises announced today the Frederick Police Chief, Jason Lando, will be participating in the Frederick Running Festival on May 1, 2022, as the “Charity Chaser”, in efforts to raise money for Lt. Stew Alcorn and the “What Would Stew Dew Fund”. Corrigan Sports and the Frederick Running Festival will donate $1 to the “What Would Stew Dew” fund for every person that Police Chief Lando and officer Tony Lawson pass during the race.
Lt. Andrew “Stew” Alcorn served the Frederick police department for more than 13 years. Stew unexpectedly passed away in summer of 2021. To honor her late husband, Jennifer Alcorn created the ‘What Would Stew Dew Fund’ to support causes including assisting first responders and advocating for children.
CSE President Lee Corrigan said, “It’s an honor and we are proud to contribute to the “What Would Stew Dew Fund” In addition to honoring one of Fredericks dedicated police officers, we have a chance to benefit all the men and women of the Frederick Police Department who protect our city.”
“Stew Alcorn was an inspiration to all who knew him. At home and at work he pushed himself and those around him to do better. Stew’s legacy lives on in the “What Would Stew Dew” movement. The very few people who have witnessed me run will tell you it is not a strength of mine. Actually, it’s tough to even watch. But we all know what Stew would do. So, on May 1st, Officer Tony Lawson and I will run in memory of Stew and to honor the Alcorn family. It might not be pretty, but we will do it for Stew.” Stated Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando.
“Stew worked the running festival alongside his law enforcement brothers and sisters each year and embraced the thousands of community members it brought out to run through our wonderful City.” Jennifer Alcorn said. “Stew got involved in triathlons to further stretch his fitness goals and had been training for the Ironman 70.3 race at the time of his passing.”
“I am incredibly grateful to Corrigan Sports, FOP Lodge 91, and our entire FPD family for bringing together this incredible fundraising opportunity for the fund we’ve established to carry on Stew’s legacy. We are honored to have so much support from the entire community in which we live, and Stew served. He gave so much willingly and happily while he was with us, and this will ensure we can give back for years to come to the causes he cared most about. I know he would be so humbled and proud. This year, there’s no doubt he’ll be out there yet again with his law enforcement family and running side by side with all of our race participants.”
Donations will be made to the “What Would Stew Dew” through Frederick’s Community Foundation.
