John Heath's Page
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
In May I will be riding my bicycle along with 7 other Atlanta Police Officers and several hundred other police officers from all over the nation to raise money for police officers who have died in the line of duty and for the Law Officers Memorial. I will be riding four days from Florham Park, New Jersey to Washington, DC with the Police Unity Tour which is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code, therefore, dontations made to the Police Unity Tour are fully tax deductible. Please make all contributions payable to the Police Unity Tour Inc (affiliated with John Heath, Atlanta Police Department).
I have never done anything like this before but believe it to be for a good cause and so am asking for your support as I need to raise $1,750 ($1,882 if by credit card) in order to participate and as a new member I have to raise $500 within the first month. This looks to be an exciting trip and for a good cause so thank you for your consideration and support.
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!
UPDATE April 2, 2012:
WOW! I cannot believe all of the GENEROUS response from everyone. I am humbled and amazed. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! AMAZING!!! I have been encouraged to raise my fundrasing goal and so lets see what happens. Several of my team mates are also doing well, but a few could use some of your help so if you wish to donate please consider helpling one of them out. You can see who they are by clicking on the Team tab. One generous donor bought us all a pair of shorts and matching helmets from Peachtree Bicycles, and the IBPO (police union) bought all of the team members (except myself since I am not a member) 2 shirts and a windbreaker. Some members will be driving my van and pulling a trailer that a friend allowed us to use so that we can bring our bicycles up there. My airplane ticket is also booked. WOW, God is good. . I have also began to pick up my training miles and am sure that I will be ready by May. Thanks to all of you and may God bless you!
