Help Us Dedicate December 17th To #OfficerMorgan

 Sign up to Volunteer for #OfficerMorgan Day

When 11Alive aired the story of Morgan Steward, a five year old whose dream is becoming a police officer, hundreds of people told the station that they wanted to do “something bigger”. Morgan suffers from SMA type 2, a condition that causes muscle weakness and respiratory failure. Morgan's dream is to become a police officer and on Tuesday, December 17th from 10:00am-1:00pm hundreds of happy souls are taking over Covington for #OfficerMorgan Day.

Morgan has a lot of little dreams: to write speeding tickets, help kids cross the street, give a speech to "bad guys". He also has some pretty big dreams. 11Alive's Help Desk is tackling all of them! If you want to participate here's what you can do to help:
