Police Unity Tour of Southern California
Challenge Ride, Somerset NJ to Washington DC
Departs Somerset on May 10, 2014.
The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of the
Police Officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to
raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial.
Below is a short video of the 2013 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 last May we had nearly 1600 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 12 Million Dollars. The Police Unity Tour is the
largest fundraiser for the National Law Enforcement Memorial.
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 help us raise funds for this worthy cause.
