Police Unity Tour 2013 to Arrive at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial


Washington, DC – On Sunday May 12, nearly 1,700 cyclists with the Police Unity Tour will complete their 2013 journey to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. 
The Tour’s six spokes will converge on May 12 when the riders arrive at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial—at approximately 2:00 pm—to the cheers of thousands of family members, friends, colleagues and supporters.
Upon arrival, each rider will pedal through the Memorial’s ‘Pathways of Remembrance,’ which flank the Memorial walls.  Once each rider has filed onto the Memorial grounds, there will be a brief ceremony with remarks by the Police Unity Tour’s Board of Directors and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s Chairman and CEO Craig W. Floyd. 
Given that part of the Police Unity Tour’s mission is to raise funds for the Memorial, Police Unity Tour executives will present Mr. Floyd with a check for the total amount of funds raised by the riders participating in the 2013 ride. At the conclusion of the ceremony, each rider will receive a medal commemorating his or her participation in this year’s ride.
Along their routes, riders stopped at 14 Target® stores to further the group’s primary mission of raising awareness about law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Target® is a generous sponsor of the Police Unity Tour, the Memorial Fund’s National Police Week activities and the entire law enforcement community.
