Philadelphia Eagle Pro-Bowl offensive lineman Landon Dickerson accepted the invitation to to become a board member of the Montgomery County Hero Fund at a special event for first responders and supporters on July 21st held in the plaza adjacent to Hotel West & Main in in Conshohocken. The event was hosted by NBC10’s Deanna Durante, who is a native of Conshohocken and the daughter of a former Montgomery County Sheriff.
“It’s an honor to be on the board of the Hero Fund,” shared Dickerson. “I have so much respect for our first responders, so it was an easy yes for me to be able to support those that need some help when life gets tough.”
The fund was started in 2012 by Sharon and Sean E. Cullen in response to the murder of Officer Brad Fox of the Plymouth Township Police Department and United States Marine Corps (Ret.). Officer Fox was shot and killed just off Conshohocken Road while pursuing a suspect.
The purpose of the fund is to provide immediate and ongoing relief and services to any law enforcement officer, military personnel, firemen, paramedics and/or first responders or their loved ones as a result of tragedy on duty in or in service of the people of Montgomery County.
