LEU, inc. isupports the work of two great charities: Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and The Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP)
Last year on Labor Day morning a former colleague and friend was killed in the line of duty. After seeing the outpouring of support the community gave his family and friends I realized how important it was to work toward honoring his memory and the memory of all fallen officers. LEU has dedicated their work to raising funds for two great charities: - Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S) works to provide resources for the survivors left behind to rebuild their lives after suffering the loss of a loved one killed in the line of duty. Check this site for more info: www.nationalcops.org - Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) strives to honor all fallen officers in the United States by creating lasting memorials to them and their sacrifice. Visiters to the site can read, reflect and share stories of the officers so they are never forgotten. Check this site for more info: www.odmp.org On May 10, 2010 I will be a part of the Inaugural Ride of the Law Enforcement United's "The Road to Hope" Bicycle ride from Chesapeake, Virginia to Washington, DC. This a 250 mile bicycle ride that will take us though much of the Commonwealth of Virginia, to include the State Capital in Richmond. This ride will be about 250 miles over a 3 day period. My goal is to raise at least $1,500. The funds I raise will go to support C.O.P.S. and ODMP. I am riding to honor Officer Richard Crittenden of the North Saint Paul Police Department. For a glimpse into the impact Critter had on the people he loved, worked with and served check out : www.remembercritter.com Please make a donation to my Law Enforcement United account, so I can participate in the Ride and help support both of these wonderful organizations and honor all my fellow Brothers and Sisters who have given their lives so the rest of us may remain safe and secure in our lives.
