Law Enforcement Ambassador & Guardian Spotlight: 2013 Ride & Run to Remember Participants

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund enjoys the support of a special group of volunteers: Law Enforcement Ambassadors and Guardians. Law Enforcement Ambassadors are active and retired law enforcement officers from city, state, federal and military law enforcement agencies, while Law Enforcement Guardians are volunteers who support and honor law enforcement but are not sworn officers, allowing citizens, family members and corporate supporters to work closely with the Memorial Fund in achieving our goals.

Throughout the year our Ambassador & Guardian volunteers support our mission to honor law enforcement in many ways. One way is by participating in the annual Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember.

The Ride & Run to Remember (October 12-13, 2013) is a fun, community-oriented athletic event designed to honor the contribution and sacrifices law enforcement officers make every day, and encourage community support for the Memorial. So far some Ambassadors & Guardians who will be participating this year include Kevin Whalen, Adam Tager, and actor and Memorial Fund supporter, Vince D’Onofrio.

Kevin Whalen will be participating in the 55-mile bike ride starting and finishing at National Harbor on Saturday, October 12. Kevin will be riding with his colleagues and friends with the FLEOA DC Chapter# 9 Team.

Adam Tager will be participating in the 5K run that starts and finishes at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial on Sunday, October 13. Adam is the team captain of the LEO Supporters Team.

Vince D’Onofrio is participating virtually this year with the Arrested Development Team.

Thanks to these Ambassadors & Guardians for their support. Even if you can’t join us in Washington, DC for the event, we encourage you to register as a Virtual Participant and ride or run in your hometown. Ask your neighbors, friends, and colleagues to join you for a bike ride or a 5K. Virtual participation allows you to create your own course and have some fun—all to raise support for a great cause.
