Shortly after 2 pm today, over 2,000 members of the Police Unity Tour completed their long journey to Washington, DC. Participants traveled hundreds of miles over the past three days to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
Friends, family and supporters gathered at the Memorial, waving signs and cheering on the participants as they finished the long ride. The Police Unity Tour’s motto is “We Ride for Those Who Died” and is one that each rider seriously embraces. Participants not only trained hard for the 300 mile average ride but also raised money to provide awareness and financial support for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
After all riders had entered the Memorial, a brief ceremony was held, and the Police Unity Tour presented a check for $2.32 million to Craig W. Floyd, President & CEO of the the Memorial Fund.
We thank all the members of the Police Unity Tour, who worked tirelessly to ensure the service and sacrifice of America's law enforcement heroes are forever remembered. Their generosity, commitment and unity are vital to honoring all officers killed in the line of duty.
