A Huge Thank You to Our Generous Sponsors
Law Enforcement United made their fourth annual 250-mile journey, the “Road to Hope” from Chesapeake, Virginia, to the Jefferson Memorial during National Police Week 2013. Before presenting C.O.P.S. with $150,000, the bicyclists rode in honor of the law enforcement heroes that died in the line of duty and in support of the survivors. The contributions from LEU’s ride are used to fund costs for C.O.P.S. Kids Summer Camp and other C.O.P.S. Kids programs. LEU has had volunteers at C.O.P.S Kids Camp and have sponsored and volunteered at events like COPS WALK. C.O.P.S. is honored to have such wonderful support from LEU.
