In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized with the hope of bringing public awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. That year 18 riders set out on a four day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. which raised $18,000.00.
In 2011, 1600 riders nationwide made the trip to Washington D.C. and were able to raise over 1.65 Million Dollars for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. In almost fifteen years, the Police Unity Tour has raised nearly 12 Million Dollars in total donations.
This year myself and Guy Patterson are proud to be the first members of the Cranford Police Department and PBA Local # 52 to participate in the Police Unity Tour. We will be leaving East Hanover, NJ on May 9, 2013 and arriving 320 miles later in Washington D.C. on May 12, 2013. We will be working hard in the upcoming months to raise our goal of over $3600.00 for the charity. Thank you all for the support.
