2010 Memorial Ride
On May 10, members of Law Enforcement United participated in an approximately 250 mile, 2½-day memorial bike ride called the "Road to Hope." Money raised from this event will be donated to support the Concerns of Police Survivors organization and the Officer Down Memorial Page.
The 2010 Memorial Ride will begin with a kick-off ceremony at the Chesapeake Conference Center in Chesapeake, Virgina, on Monday, May 10, at 7 a.m. The bicyclists departed for Washington, D.C. at 8 a.m., traveling approximately 110 miles of almost entirely flat terrain the first day. They traveled approximately 70 miles on each of the next 2 days over terrain which consisted of some rolling hills. The riders arrived at the site of the September 11 Memorial at the Pentagon on May 12, after which the participating officers remained in the D.C. metro area to participate in National Peace Officer Memorial Day services.
Day 1 - 105 Miles to Richmond
Day 2 - 75 Miles from Richmond to Stafford
Officer Paul Dooley of the Brainerd Police Department participated in the Road to Hope event with Law Enforcement United Team Minnesota. Officer Dooley rode in honor of Richard Crittenden, a North St. Paul, Minnesota, officer who was killed in September of 2009.
