MY GOAL $1,850.00

Welcome to My Personal Page

Each year, to honor law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, over 2000 police cyclists ride from the East Coast to Washington DC for Police Week. The route traverses 300 miles rain or shine, escorted by police motor officers from around the country. I am again honored to ride with Team West Michigan, organized by the Grand Rapids Police Department, my uncle and grandfather's former agency. My current agency, Nevada Highway Patrol, has also graciously allowed me to ride for our fallen troopers. Here are the officers and troopers for whom I am riding this year:

Grand Rapids PD Patrolman Wayne Vonk, was shot and killed in the line of duty while apprehending two armed robbers (1/19/1969).

Ann Arbor Police Officer Clifford Stang was shot and killed when he interrupted an armed robbery in local store (3/21/1935).

Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) Trooper Carlos Borland was shot and killed by a homicide suspect on a traffic stop (12/1/1993).

NHP Trooper Kara Kelly-Borgognone was killed in a traffic crash responding to a bomb threat (2/28/2008).

NHP Trooper Daniel Peterson was killed by a drunk driver while making a traffic stop (6/18/1992). 

The Police Unity Tour’s motto is: “We Ride for Those Who Died” and we raise awareness about America’s fallen officers. I hope you will support me by making a donation to my page today.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial honors America’s fallen law enforcement heroes who have died in the line of duty. Their mission is to tell the story of America’s law enforcement officers and make it safer for those who serve.

Please help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a tax deductible donation, no matter how small.

Thank you for generous support!
