Elbeco Supporting Officers' Cross-Country Bike Trek to Raise Funds for National LEO Memorial

June 01, 2011  | 

Elbeco, Inc. has signed on as a major sponsor of "Team Sac PD," a group of law enforcement officers from the Sacramento (Calif.) Police Department bicycling 3,000 miles across the United States to raise funds and awareness for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC.  The company has also issued a challenge grant to its national network of dealer partners, to help further grow support.

The team will participate in The Race Across America, a national coast-to-coast bicycle race set for June 18-25, 2011.  Team Sac PD will use the race as a platform to honor the nearly 19,000 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty by carrying their names, visiting local and state memorials, and encouraging media coverage of their efforts.  They also will solicit funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, so that those whose lives have been lost can be properly recognized.  

"As a longtime supporter of the law enforcement community, Elbeco is pleased to sponsor Team Sac PD," said Elbeco President, David Lurio.  "Because of the importance of this cause, in addition to our $5,000 corporate sponsorship, Elbeco has signed on to match - dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500 - any funds our dealer partners contribute to Team Sac PD.  All funds donated will support the National Law Enforcement Memorial.  We are confident that our dealer partners will join us in supporting this very important initiative."

Elbeco personnel, as well as local uniform distributors/dealers and law enforcement officers from throughout the U.S., are poised to support Team Sac PD as it races across the country.  They are organizing "cheering sections" at select time stations along the route to encourage racers and present donations as they ride through their local communities.
