What started as a tribute to honor the sacrifices of Police Officers who have fallen in the line of duty with a handful of people on a four day fundraising trip has turned into an annual event with nine chapters and several thousand participants in a little more than a decade. The bicycle ride leaves Florham Park, New Jersey and arrives at the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum in Washington, D.C four days later.
The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum in Washington, D.C. The third purpose is to throw a party to raise funds. Mudhen Brewing Company helps with the third purpose. Mudhen Brewing Company donates a portion of sales once a year to Team Wildwood’s group of riders who consists of a number of active law enforcement officials.
