Police Unity Tour Chapter VIII 2012
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
I participated in the Police Unity Tour this past summer, which in part, was made possible by the donations received from my supporters. The ride was a great challenge, followed by an even greater sense of dedication and accomplishment. To be in a place with the families of those who have died in the line of duty and also surrounded by police officers who, just as I, completed the difficult 3 day ride as a tribute those individuals, was bittersweet and an honor. An honor worth doing a million times again. I am happy to announce that I will be participating in the Police Unity Tour 250 mile bicycle ride again in 2012.
Just as in 2011, I will need to raise $2000 dollars to participate, all of which goes to the National Law Enforcement Memorial located at the finish line of the ride in Washington DC.
This year, as a thank you to my supporters, I will be giving away bracelets in exchange for donations. The bracelets are black with a thin blue line which has a very special meaning.
What does the Thin Blue Line represent?
• The Blue represents the officer and the courage they find deep inside when faced with insurmountable odds.
• The Black background is constant reminder of our fallen brother and sister officers.
• The Line is what police officers protect, the barrier between anarchy and a civilized society, between order and chaos as well as the respect for decency and lawfulness.
• Together they symbolize the camaraderie we all share, a brotherhood like none other.
If you have any questions you can contact me on my cell phone or by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
