Welcome to my fundraising page. I am riding my bicycle for 500 miles in just 4 days this year to honor law enforcement officers and first responders that have fallen in the line of duty. Your support will help me reach my goal. All proceeds that we raise will go directly to Charlotte's Finest Legacy Foundation to support its mission of providing college scholarships to area youth seeking a career in law enforcement.
In 2017 by God's will, I survived an heroing accident in which I was underneath a semi while training for the Police Memorial ride. Although my bike was crushed I only spent two days in the hospital recovering from streched ligaments in the leg and able to fully return to the rigors of long distance cycling. I train hard through the cold Ohio winter months to ensure having both the physical stamina and the mental fortitude to endure the grueling challenge in any weather. Riding in 25 degree weather I often have ice dangling from my helment at the completion of a training ride. The sacrafice and dedication it takes for we cyclist to prepare to endure this Memorial ride is both emotional, and physical.
Please support me with this worthy endeavor to respectfully honor the fallen heros of our country. One of my children, Seth Isaac, wanted to say, "Howdy" to the good folks that support his daddy.
Thank you for your support
Bike 2 DC - Ride to Honor
On Monday, May 9, 2022, we will meet at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Headquarters. We will hold an opening ceremony to acknowledge those N.C. law enforcement officers who were tragically killed in 2021. Then we will roll out with a full police escort to begin our meaningful journey to DC, fully supported all along the way.
Bike 2 DC - Ride To Honor is a fundraising event benefitting Charlotte's Finest Legacy Foundation and its mission. Registered riders accept two challenges. The first is to ride 500 miles in just 4 days. But more importantly, the second is to raise money for this amazing organization. All riders agree to a minimum fundraising amount based on the category selected during registration. Riders can reach their goal by donating to their own fundraising effort or by sharing their custom PledgeReg fundraising page with friends, family, and co-workers. PledgeReg makes it easy and fun to share your own personal message about why you are raising money and even easier to collect donations.
Since 2007, Law Enforcement officers from Charlotte and the surrounding area have gathered each May to ride bicycles 500 miles over four days from Charlotte to Washington, DC as a part of the annual “Bike 2 DC - Ride to Honor” event. Our journey is not easy but each mile is a tribute to those law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The Charlotte’s Finest Legacy Foundation was established to provide the youth of Charlotte, NC, and Mecklenburg County with the freedom to continue their education past high school. The Charlotte’s Finest Legacy Foundation is the result of a collaborative effort designed to honor the memory of Charlotte’s Fallen Heroes by furthering their Legacy through the pursuit of higher education.
