On September 6th I will participate in my third Tour de Force memorial ride. These four incredible days of cycling starting at Yankee Stadium in New York and finishing at Fenway Park in Boston, honoring the ultimate sacrifices of law enforcement officers and preserving the memory of those lost on 9/11.
The “Tour de Force” was started in 2002 after NYPD Det. Robert De Paolis (ret) decided to ride his bike to honor the fallen police officers that gave their lives in the September 11, 2001 attacks. He was then joined by 7 other members of the NYPD and one member of the Bronx District Attorney's Office and along with four volunteer support personnel, they cycled their way from the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, to Ground Zero, NYC.
In 2003, the Tour de Force was incorporated in the state of New York as a nonprofit charity and later gained 501(c)3 status from the IRS.
Each year, the Tour de Force raises funds to benefit the families of Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty nationwide.
