About The Fallen Officers/Robert L Zore Foundation:Rosemary Zore was only 7 years old when she lost her father Robert L. Zore a Miami Police Officer on Christmas Day 1983. Rosemary always wanted to do something to not only honor her late father but to also help other children all over the country that have also lost a loved one in the line of duty...
Officer Robert L. Zore was killed in the line of duty on December 25, 1983. His life and legacy inspired his only child to create the Robert L. Zore Foundation and The Fallen Officers. Rosemary Zore believes that when a police officer gives his or her life for our community, the least we can do is to honor that ultimate sacrifice by caring for his or her children. The Robert L. Zore and Fallen Officers is a registered 501.3c Not For Profit organization which will host flag football games between police officers, former and Current NFL Players and local leaders around the country to raise money for the fallen officer's children called the Blue Bowl. We will also have our Blues For The Blue Concert, Swing For The Blue Golf NFL Charity Event and we will also hold our annual "Mission 2244 Gala" in Naples Fl for our yearly fundraiser for this great cause.
Our mission is to provide support to the children of the fallen, honor the sacrifice of our Hero's. Strengthen local leaders to help unite law enforcement and the community once again. We help families of law enforcement that are killed in the line of duty or other deaths involving law enforcement. We help with financial burdens associated with illness, injury and disabilities.We encourage any family that has lost a loved one in the line of duty and need assistance to write us so we can help. If your son or daughter needs anything; let us try and help. We are here for you and your family.
