Welcome to our fundraising page. Deirdre and I are riding our bicycles 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 us reach our 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.
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.
