The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is encouraging all law enforcement supporters to register for the fifth annual Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember, which will take place October 10 and 11, on-site in the Washington DC area or virtually from any location. This fun, community-oriented athletic event is designed to raise awareness of the service and sacrifice law enforcement officers make every day and to generate funds in support of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The Memorial Fund has released this easy-to-share video to help get folks involved.

The Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember will feature:

  • 55- and 30-mile Bicycle Races starting and ending at National Harbor, MD;
  • 5K Run/Walk starting and ending at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial;
  • Post-event finisher awards (run) and photos at both locations; and
  • Virtual Participant category for those unable to physically attend the events.

NLEOMF is again offering the Road Warrior category for participants who want to both bike (either distance) and run. The Road Warrior option is sure to test your strength and endurance.

Supporters who are unable to participate in the Ride & Run to Remember are encouraged to volunteer for the event. Ride & Run relies heavily on more than 150 volunteers in order for the event to be successful. Those interested in participating or volunteering are encouraged to go to www.RideandRuntoRemember.org for more information.

"The Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember is a perfect opportunity for the entire community to show its support for America's peace officers and thank them for all they do to keep our families and neighborhoods safe," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman & CEO of the Memorial Fund.

The Ride & Run to Remember is designed to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund's mission to tell the story of American law enforcement and make it safer for those who serve. Riders and Road Warriors are required to raise a minimum of $117 to represent the officers killed in the performance of duty last year. Participants who fundraise will be eligible to receive the fundraising rewards slated this year, courtesy of 5.11 Tactical.

More information about the event is available at www.RideandRuntoRemember.org.
