The Police Unity Tour's motto, "We Ride for Those Who Died" is one that each rider seriously embraces.  Participants not only train hard for the 300 mile average ride, each rider raises more than $1,700 to raise awareness and financial support for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

The Tour's seven spokes will converge in Washington, DC on May 12th when they will ride into the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial at approximately 2:30 pm to the cheers of thousands of family, friends, colleagues and supporters.

Along the routes, riders will stop at 13 Target® stores to further the group's primary mission of raising awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Target® is a generous sponsor of the Police Unity Tour and the overall law enforcement community.
