**Please note - this is a SOLO running effort.  I am not a sworn law enforcement officer . This is not a sanctioned race of any sort nor is it sponsored by, affilitated or in conjuction with the LAPRAAC’s  Baker2Vegas Challenge Cup Relay Race, the Long Beach Police Department or the LBPD Baker2Vegas Team*


Every year teams of law enforcement agencies from across California and the US come together for a relay race from Baker, CA to Las Vegas, NV.  

This year - in a show of community support and solidarity with local law enforcement - I will run from Baker to Vegas - approximately 120 miles solo.  I will run the course starting on Thursday March 21st and Friday March 22nd.

I am using this opportunity to raise money for the The Long Beach Police Officers Memorial Widows and Orphans Emergency and Scholarship Trust Fund.

I felt it was time again to do something with my running and the The Long Beach Police Officers Memorial Widows and Orphans Emergency and Scholarship Trust Fund seems like a great opportunity for us as a community to give back to those who give to us every day.  

The Long Beach Police Officers Memorial Widows and Orphans Emergency and Scholarship Trust Fund provides: 

Emergency financial assistance to the families of police officers killed or injured in the line of duty.

Provides assistance to active officers and families when faced with crisis.

Provides college scholarships to the children of active officers.

Well this campaign has been a great success and we all have cause to celebrate! This was a great opportunity for us to really put a voice to our communities belief and support of our local police. So thank you to all the donors, supporters, the POA, the City and Community of LB and our LB Police.

If you weren't aware - I completed the 120 mile run last Friday evening at 6:15 pm. I has a total time of 34 1/2 hours - start to finish. I was warmly met by friend's, family and representatives of the LV Metro PD.

Thank you all again for your belief in me and thank you for truly supporting our police. #Backthebadge

It was a forceful reminder during my Christmas Day ride along yesterday that the life of a Police Officer can change in one second. We went from a perfectly quiet, peaceful morning to confronting an armed suspect in the middle of the street in broad day light. Very tense and scary events.

A donation to the POA Emergency fund helps ensure that if tragedy strikes - Officers and their families have some help.

In the closing days of 2018 - consider making a tax deductible donation.

Wow! Almost half way to our goal donation number! Thank you everyone!

My school semester is over and just doing some maintenance running through the holidays - my focused training plan kicks off in January with lots of road running and some fun races to get ready for the run in March!

Thanks to everyone for your continued support! It's the journey which makes the event itself so meaningful.
