Every year in May, thousands of Law Enforcement Officers and supporters begin pedaling bicycles from New Jersey to the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum located in Washington D.C. (approximately 340 miles). This ride is to honor Law Enforcement Officers who have been killed in the line of duty. This year, two Officers from Rockwall Police Department and a DPS Sergeant will be riding with several other Officers from surrounding areas in honor of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect us.
Officers Curtis Bennett, Ben Woodruff, and DPS Sergeant Morris will be serving hot pancakes and sausages for dinner next Wednesday May 2, 2012 from about 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM, yes it is a dinner. We will be at the Rockwall Fire Station located at 920 Rockwall Parkway off Summer Lee. We will also be serving orange juice and coffee. Tickets for this event are $5.00 per person for all you can eat. Follow our progress on blog site Our Police Unity Tour 2012
To help raise funds needed to maintain the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and museum, we will be holding several fund raisers in the Rockwall area. One of the constant fund raisers we are doing is to sell these challenge coins. We had a company in Utah give them a unique design different than a typical challenge coin. The sprocket design is to symbolize our drive and dedication to complete this ride and present the families of fallen brothers a token of our never ending appreciation for their sacrifice.
For all of us participating in this ride, both past, present and future, thank you in advance for your support.
Thanks for your support!!!
