• Ride will aid officers’ survivors
     | June 13,2013

    MONTPELIER — Ride4Cops will be rolling through Montpelier on Friday at noon, when organization leaders plan to join Attorney General William Sorrell and Senate President John Campbell at the Statehouse to honor police officers who have died in service to Vermont. The national organization will donate $2,000 to help surviving families. The event will feature Ride4Cops founder Harry Herington’s custom memorial motorcycle and a core group of motorcycle riders.

    The next day approximately 300 riders will take to the road at 12:30 p.m. from the Rutland police barracks and traveling through Vermont before ending their journey at the Franklin County sheriff’s office in St. Albans.

    “As a former police officer I know that an officer’s biggest concern isn’t falling in the line of duty, but what will happen to his or her family if that occurs,” Herington said in a news release. Ride4Cops says it donates 100 percent of the money it raises to Concerns of Police Survivors, which provides support to surviving families and co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
