Weekend cycle event raises more than $20,000

PoliceOne Staff Report
(BATON ROUGE, La.) -- Pouring rain and 35 degree temperature couldn't dampen the spirits of 140 motorcycle officers from 38 agencies in eight states who competed this past weekend in the three-day Fourth Annual Gulf Coast Police Motorcycles Skills Championship.

Hosted this year by the Baton Rouge Police Department, the event is expected to raise more than $20,000 for the Dream Day Foundation, an organization formed by local business leaders that supports patients of St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis.

Riders ability and agility were judged in five different traffic-cone-laned courses during the competition.

Food and fraternity highlighted the event as participants feasted on Louisiana's famous Jambalya Thursday evening and shrimp and catfish on Friday, according to Lieutenant Michael Coulter of the Baton Rouge Traffic Department who organized and hosted the event.

More than $4,000 was raised in an auction merchandise and more than 100 door prizes were distributed to contestants.

Lt. Jimmy Fullen of the Galveston, Texas Independent School District Police Department organized the first competition , which the Galveston department hosted for its first two years.

Among departments represented at the event were riders from Broward County, Kissimmee and Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Fairfax County and Arlington, Virginia; Fort Bend County, Galveston Independent School District, Garland, Fort Worth, Corsicana, Plano and Irving, Texas; the District of Columbia; Florence, Alabama; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Baton Rouge, Louisiana State University, Opelousas; and Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. If your department is interested in joining next year's event contact Lt. Coulter at the Baton Rouge department.
