Support

Wearing Badge #67, Craig Birkholz was a City of Fond du Lac Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty on March 20, 2011.  He was a military veteran, a good husband and a dedicated police officer who set an example of dedication to his job, commitment to good physical conditioning, using care & compassion carrying out his role as a police officer.

Make a Difference

The Birky Challenge Scholarship Team created a scholarship fund at the Fond du Lac Area Foundation that is supported by the Birky 67 Challenge, an annual charity bicycle ride of 67 miles, in an effort to provide the financial help needed to enter into a career as a police officer.  It is hoped that this scholarship may help educate and prepare future police officers who can be as effective and as impactful in his/her community as Craig was.
