I have been a member of the Raleigh Police Department for over 17years. Over that time I have had the opportunity to work alongside selfless men and women who serve their community.
As a member of the Raleigh Police Memorial foundation I take part in The Road to Hope bicycle ride with Law Enforcement United. This is a 250 mile bicycle ride over three days from Chesapeake Va to Washington DC. During The Road to Hope police officers from across the country come together to ride in memory of fallen officers. The money raised helps support Concerns of Police Survivors which is dedicated to supporting the family members and coworkers of fallen officers. C.O.P.S. also holds a summer camp for the children of fallen officers. The funds raised also support the Officer Down Memorial Page which help provide a lasting tribute to fallen officers.

My deadline to raise the necessary funds is March 10, 2018. My fundraising goal is $1500.00. The Road To Hope occurs during National Police Week in May. This year myself and the members of the Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation will ride 500 miles from Raleigh, NC to Washington DC.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you are unable to donate at this time please keep in mind the officers and their families we ride to remember.
