We are three members from the Pierce County Sheriff's Honor Guard that rode in the 2012 Police Unity Tour; a 320 mile bicycle ride from Newark, New Jersey to Washington D.C. The end of this bicycle ride started "Police Week" in Washington D.C. on May 12th thru the 16th. This blog has been set up so we could post on here each night of the Tour how our ride is going for that day. We want to let those that have donated to our cause know how we did during the Police Unity Tour.
As we get closer to the Police Unity Tour (just a week and a half out) I want to repost this video I made back in November to show others what the Police Unity Tour is and why we are riding for the Sheriff's Dept. John, Mike and I spent about two hours last night packing up our bicycles into shipping boxes for the FedEx trek to meet us in East Hanover, New Jersey in a week. Only a short week to go until we fly out.
And as a friendly reminder, this Thursday at McGavick center at Clover Park Tech in Lakewood at 6p.m. (4500 Steilacoom Blvd. SW) we will be having Pierce Counties version of the Law Enforcement Memorial ceremony.
On Friday at the State Capitol in Olympia we will be present for the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial. I hope if you are able, to come and attend.
