The Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember is a fully-supported 5K race and 54-mile bike ride taking place on October 14, 2012. The 5K race will start and finish at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, and the 54-mile bike ride will start and finish at the National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD.
The Ride & Run to Remember is designed to celebrate and bring awareness to the role of law enforcement in our communities. Net proceeds benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Law enforcement officers support us every day – and every 54 hours an officer makes the ultimate sacrifice. This event is your chance to say thank you and support them in return.
