NLEOMF Announces Ride & Run to Remember Event

August 11, 2012  | 

The second annual Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember will take place in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 14, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) has announced.

The community-oriented athletic event is designed to honor the service and sacrifice law enforcement officers make every day and encourage community support for the Memorial Fund.

The event will include a 54-mile bicycle ride starting and ending at National Harbor, Md.; a 5K run starting and ending at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial; and a post-event celebration at both locations.

For the 54-mile event, bicycle riders will make their way through Maryland, passing by military forts and winding through park lands, including the Henson Creek Trail, before returning to National Harbor to complete the ride.

The 5K run will start and end near the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Runners will pass by the U.S. Capitol and other iconic D.C. landmarks before making their way back to the memorial to complete the race.

These events are designed to support the Memorial Fund's work in researching fallen law enforcement officers, conducting vital officer safety programs, maintaining the memorial grounds, and building the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum. Participants are required to raise a minimum of $54—a symbolic reminder that, on average, a law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty every 54 hours.
