Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
In May 1997, the Police Unity Tour® was organized, by Officer Patrick P. Montuore of the Florham Park (NJ) Police Department, in an effort to bring about public awareness of law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. The tour started with 18 riders on a bicycle ride from Florham Park to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial (NLEOM) in Washington D.C. which raised $18,000. This May we had nearly 1600 members nationwide who made the trip, and we are proud to announce that we were able to donate over 1.65 Million Dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, bringing our total donations to nearly 12 Million Dollars.
In late 2005, the Police Unity Tour® pledged $5 million in support of the National Law Enforcement Museum. Inspired by our commitment and our motto, "We Ride for Those Who Died", the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has selected our organization to be the sponsor of the Museum's Hall of Remembrance.
Having completed the $5 million commitment to the museum in 2009 the Police Unity Tour dedicated the 2010 ride to the restoration of the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial. The $1.1 million restoration project includes the re-engraving, coating, and sealing of the 18,983 names on the memorial as well as the cleaning of the walls and other memorial improvements.
In May of 2013, I will be riding my bicycle with Chapter VIII of the Police Unity Tour from Portsmouth, Virginia to Washington D.C. This three day journey will take me, along with over 200 other police officers and survivors, over 250 miles in a effort to raise money for this cause. Your help and donations are greatly appreciated.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
