Middletown Police Officers Chad Souza and Jean Young have committed to raising $4,500 for the Police Unity Tour four day bicycle ride that will take place in May, 2015. Police Officers from all over the country take part in this ride that starts in Florham Park, NJ and ends at the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, DC. Your generous donation will help them reach their fundraising goal for this event.
Here's a little history about the Police Unity Tour....
In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized, by Officer Patrick P. Montuore of the Florham Park Police Department, with the hope of bringing public awareness of Police Officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices.
We started with 18 riders on a four day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. which raised $18,000.00. This May we had nearly 1700 members nationwide who made the trip, and we are proud to announce that we were able to donate over 1.72 Million Dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, bringing our total donations to nearly 14 Million Dollars.
In late 2005, the Police Unity Tour pledged $5 Million in support of the National Law Enforcement Museum. Inspired by our commitment and our motto, "WE RIDE FOR THOSE WHO DIED" the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has selected our organization to be the sponsor of the Museum's Hall of Remembrance.
Having completed the $5 Million commitment to the Museum in 2009 the Police Unity Tour dedicated the 2010 ride to the restoration of the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The $1.1 Million restoration project includes the re-engraving, coating and sealing of the 18,983 names on the memorial as well as the cleaning of the walls and other memorial improvements.
Please feel free to email Chad Souza at [email redacted] if you have questions. All donations are Tax Deductible.
Thank you for your support in helping us honor those who have sacrificed so much for all of us..... We are incredibly grateful for your donations.
